When you first bought your 2005 Kia Optima, 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 Optima jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2005 Kia Optima in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Optima 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.
Your 2005 Kia Optima’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 Kia up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2005 Kia Optima shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Kia Optima shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Kia Optima’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
