2001 Grand Cherokee Jeep Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2001 Jeep Grand 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 Grand Cherokee 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 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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 dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel 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 Grand Cherokee steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Grand Cherokee’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth 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.

2001 Grand Cherokee Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Jeep Grand Cherokee? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
