Suspension Service & Repair for 2011 Jeep Patriot

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2011 Jeep Patriot

When should you have your 2011 Jeep Patriot suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2011 Jeep Patriot Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2011 Jeep Patriot, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Patriot bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2011 Jeep Patriot in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 Patriot 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 Patriot Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2011 Jeep Patriot’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 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 Patriot’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Jeep Patriot shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Jeep Patriot suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 Patriot Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Jeep's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep Patriot? 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 the tires connect with the road how Jeep intended.
  • When should I have my Jeep Patriot power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Patriot’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
