Suspension Service & Repair for 2007 Kia Spectra5

2007 Kia Spectra5 Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Kia Spectra5’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2007 Kia Spectra5 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2007 Kia Spectra5, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Spectra5 feels bouncy, drifts 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 2007 Kia Spectra5 in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Spectra5 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Kia Spectra5

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2007 Kia Spectra5’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2007 Kia Spectra5’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Kia Spectra5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2007 Kia Spectra5 suspension 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.

Questions About 2007 Kia Spectra5 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Kia's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Kia Spectra5 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Kia intended.
  • When does Kia Spectra5 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 Spectra5 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Kia service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
