2009 Hyundai Sonata Suspension Service & Repair

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2009 Hyundai Sonata

When should you have your 2009 Hyundai Sonata suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2009 Hyundai Sonata Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2009 Hyundai Sonata, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Sonata jolts, sways 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 2009 Hyundai Sonata, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 Hyundai Sonata’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Hyundai Sonata

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 Hyundai Sonata suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Hyundai Sonata shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2009 Hyundai Sonata’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2009 Sonata Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 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. 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.
  • When should I have my Hyundai Sonata power steering fluid checked? 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 follow Hyundai service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
