Suspension Service & Repair for 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe

2008 Hyundai Santa Fe Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Does Your 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Santa Fe bounces, pulls 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 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 Hyundai Santa Fe’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 Santa Fe Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe’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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Santa Fe’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Hyundai Santa Fe shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Santa Fe’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.

2008 Santa Fe Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Santa Fe's steering and 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 should my Hyundai Santa Fe get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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 your suspension perform smoothly.
