2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2004 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, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Grand Cherokee suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Grand Cherokee steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Jeep Grand Cherokee

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Grand Cherokee’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your 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. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Jeep's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep Grand 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 come into contact with the road in the way Jeep intended.
  • When should I have my Jeep Grand Cherokee power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
