When To Get 1997 Hyundai Elantra Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1997 Hyundai Elantra, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Elantra feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1997 Hyundai Elantra in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Hyundai Elantra’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Hyundai Elantra Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1997 Hyundai Elantra’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Hyundai up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1997 Hyundai Elantra shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Hyundai Elantra shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Hyundai Elantra’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1997 Hyundai Elantra Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Elantra's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Hyundai Elantra? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Hyundai Elantra power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Elantra’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
