When To Get 2005 Kia Spectra5 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2005 Kia Spectra5, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Spectra5 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2005 Kia Spectra5, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Spectra5 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Kia Spectra5

Your 2005 Kia Spectra5’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 Kia up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Kia Spectra5’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Kia Spectra5 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Spectra5’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Spectra5 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Spectra5's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Kia Spectra5? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Kia intended.
  • When should I have my Kia Spectra5 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Spectra5’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
