Is It Time For 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Grand Cherokee bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Grand Cherokee 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee’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.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Jeep up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Jeep Grand Cherokee shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Grand Cherokee’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Jeep's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Jeep Grand Cherokee get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Grand Cherokee power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Grand Cherokee’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
