2002 Jeep Wrangler Suspension Service & Repair

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2002 Jeep Wrangler

When should you have your 2002 Jeep Wrangler suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2002 Jeep Wrangler Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2002 Jeep Wrangler, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Wrangler feels bouncy, 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 2002 Jeep Wrangler in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Wrangler steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Wrangler Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2002 Jeep Wrangler’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2002 Jeep Wrangler shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Jeep Wrangler shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Jeep Wrangler suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Wrangler Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Jeep's 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep Wrangler? 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 Wrangler power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Wrangler is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
