1999 Hyundai Sonata Suspension Service & Repair

1999 Hyundai Sonata Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 1999 Hyundai Sonata suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1999 Hyundai Sonata Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1999 Hyundai Sonata, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Sonata bounces, sways 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 1999 Hyundai Sonata 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’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 power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Sonata suspension system needs repair, 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 Sonata’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Hyundai Sonata Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1999 Hyundai Sonata’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. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sonata’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Hyundai Sonata shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 Hyundai Sonata’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1999 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Hyundai Sonata? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Hyundai service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
