Is It Time For 2006 Kia Sportage Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2006 Kia Sportage, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Sportage bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2006 Kia Sportage, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Kia Sportage suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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 Sportage

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 Kia Sportage’s suspension. 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 2006 Kia Sportage shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Kia Sportage shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2006 Kia Sportage’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2006 Sportage Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Kia's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Kia Sportage? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Kia Sportage power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Sportage is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Kia's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
