Suspension Service & Repair for 2011 Hyundai Elantra

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2011 Hyundai Elantra

Not sure when or if your Hyundai Elantra’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2011 Hyundai Elantra Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Hyundai Elantra, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Elantra bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2011 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Hyundai Elantra

Your 2011 Hyundai Elantra’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Elantra’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Hyundai Elantra shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Hyundai Elantra suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2011 Elantra Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Hyundai's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Hyundai Elantra get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Hyundai intended.
  • When should I have my Hyundai Elantra power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Elantra’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
