When To Get 2008 Jeep Commander Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2008 Jeep Commander, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Commander jolts, 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 2008 Jeep Commander, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Commander 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 parts of your Jeep Commander suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Commander Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Jeep Commander suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2008 Jeep Commander shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Jeep Commander shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Jeep Commander suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2008 Jeep Commander Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Jeep's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Jeep Commander? 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 Commander 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 Commander’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
