Suspension Service & Repair for 2004 Jeep Wrangler

2004 Jeep Wrangler Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Jeep Wrangler’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2004 Jeep Wrangler Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2004 Jeep Wrangler, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Wrangler bounces, drifts 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 2004 Jeep Wrangler in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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 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 parts of your Jeep Wrangler suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Jeep Wrangler Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2004 Jeep Wrangler’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 Wrangler’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Jeep Wrangler shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Jeep Wrangler’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 Wrangler Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Wrangler's steering and 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Jeep Wrangler 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 the tires connect with the road how Jeep intended.
  • Does my Jeep Wrangler power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Wrangler is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
