When does Jeep recommend steering and suspension service for 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokees?

Is It Time For 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Grand Cherokee feels bouncy, pulls 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 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, 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. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2009 Grand Cherokee Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Jeep Grand Cherokee get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 connect with the road how Jeep intended.
  • Does my Jeep Grand Cherokee 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 Grand Cherokee’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
