Is It Time For 1996 Hyundai Sonata Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1996 Hyundai Sonata, 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 Sonata jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1996 Hyundai Sonata in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 parts of your Hyundai Sonata suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Hyundai Sonata Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Hyundai Sonata 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 1996 Hyundai Sonata shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Hyundai Sonata shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Hyundai Sonata suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1996 Sonata Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 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 Sonata get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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.
  • When does Hyundai Sonata 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 Sonata’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
