Is It Time For 1998 Hyundai Elantra Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1998 Hyundai Elantra, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! 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 1998 Hyundai Elantra in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 Elantra steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Hyundai Elantra Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1998 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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Hyundai up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Hyundai Elantra shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Hyundai Elantra shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Hyundai Elantra suspension 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 1998 Hyundai Elantra Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Hyundai's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Hyundai intended.
  • Does my Hyundai Elantra power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Elantra’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Hyundai's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
