2001 Jeep Cherokee Suspension Service & Repair

2001 Jeep Cherokee Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Jeep recommend steering and suspension service for 2001 Jeep Cherokees?

Does Your 2001 Jeep Cherokee Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2001 Jeep Cherokee, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Cherokee feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2001 Jeep Cherokee in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2001 Jeep Cherokee suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Cherokee’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Jeep Cherokee shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2001 Jeep Cherokee suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 2001 Jeep Cherokee Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Jeep's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 Jeep Cherokee get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Jeep Cherokee 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 Cherokee is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
