When To Get 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Santa Fe feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Hyundai Santa Fe’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Hyundai Santa Fe Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe’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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Hyundai Santa Fe shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 Santa Fe Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Hyundai's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new 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 Santa Fe 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. 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 should I have my Hyundai Santa Fe power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
