Is It Time For 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Grand Cherokee bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Jeep Grand Cherokee suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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 2012 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 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Jeep Grand Cherokee shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee suspension 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 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Grand Cherokee's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Jeep Grand Cherokee power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. 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 smoothly.
