When To Get 2001 Hyundai Elantra Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2001 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, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2001 Hyundai Elantra, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Hyundai Elantra

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2001 Hyundai Elantra suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2001 Hyundai Elantra shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Hyundai Elantra shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Elantra’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2001 Elantra Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Hyundai Elantra? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Hyundai intended.
  • When does Hyundai Elantra power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Elantra is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
