When To Get 1998 Hyundai Sonata Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1998 Hyundai Sonata, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! 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 1998 Hyundai Sonata 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 your Sonata 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 Sonata

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Hyundai Sonata suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Hyundai Sonata’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Hyundai Sonata shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Hyundai Sonata suspension 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.

Questions About 1998 Hyundai Sonata Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Hyundai's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Hyundai Sonata? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Hyundai Sonata power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Sonata’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Hyundai's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
