Not sure when or if your Land Rover Discovery’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1997 Land Rover Discovery Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1997 Land Rover Discovery, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Discovery jolts, sways 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 1997 Land Rover Discovery, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Land Rover Discovery 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.

Land Rover Discovery Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1997 Land Rover Discovery’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Land Rover up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1997 Land Rover Discovery’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Land Rover Discovery shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Land Rover Discovery suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1997 Discovery Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Discovery'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.
  • Why should my Land Rover Discovery get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Land Rover Discovery power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Discovery is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Land Rover's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
