Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Hyundai Sonata

Does Your 1989 Hyundai Sonata Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 Hyundai Sonata, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Sonata jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1989 Hyundai Sonata, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Sonata suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Sonata 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 Sonata

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Hyundai Sonata’s suspension. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 Hyundai Sonata’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Hyundai Sonata shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Hyundai Sonata suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 Sonata 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 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Hyundai Sonata? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 Sonata power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Hyundai service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
