Is It Time For 1998 Jeep Cherokee Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1998 Jeep Cherokee, 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 Cherokee bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1998 Jeep Cherokee, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Cherokee suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Jeep Cherokee’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Cherokee Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1998 Jeep Cherokee’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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Jeep up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Jeep Cherokee’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Jeep Cherokee shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cherokee’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1998 Jeep Cherokee Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cherokee's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new 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 Jeep Cherokee? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Jeep intended.
  • When does Jeep Cherokee 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
