Is It Time For 2008 Jeep Wrangler Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2008 Jeep Wrangler, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Wrangler jolts, sways 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 2008 Jeep Wrangler in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Wrangler suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Wrangler steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Jeep Wrangler Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2008 Jeep Wrangler’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 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. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Jeep Wrangler shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 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.

2008 Wrangler Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Jeep's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Jeep Wrangler power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
