When To Get 2016 Kia Forte Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2016 Kia Forte, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Forte feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2016 Kia Forte in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Forte 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.

Kia Forte Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2016 Kia Forte’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 Kia up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2016 Kia Forte shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Kia Forte shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Kia Forte suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
