Does Your 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Grand Cherokee jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 absorbers, 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 steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward 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 regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
