1997 Sephia Kia Steering & Suspension Services

1997 Kia Sephia Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1997 Kia Sephia suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 1997 Kia Sephia Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1997 Kia Sephia, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Sephia jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1997 Kia Sephia in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Sephia steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Kia Sephia Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1997 Kia Sephia’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sephia’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Kia Sephia shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Kia Sephia suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1997 Sephia Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Kia's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Kia Sephia? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 does Kia Sephia power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Sephia is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
