2012 Jeep Wrangler Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Jeep Wrangler due for service yet?

Does Your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2012 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 jolts, leans 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 2012 Jeep Wrangler in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Wrangler suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Jeep Wrangler’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Jeep Wrangler

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 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 limit vibration and keep your Jeep up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Jeep Wrangler shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Jeep Wrangler shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Jeep Wrangler 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 Wrangler Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Wrangler's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Jeep Wrangler get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Jeep Wrangler power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Wrangler is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
