When To Get 2005 Land Rover Freelander Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2005 Land Rover Freelander, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Freelander feels bouncy, 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 2005 Land Rover Freelander in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 Freelander 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 Land Rover Freelander

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Land Rover Freelander’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 Land Rover up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Land Rover Freelander’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Land Rover Freelander shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2005 Land Rover Freelander suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2005 Land Rover Freelander Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Land Rover'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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Land Rover Freelander get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Land Rover Freelander power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Freelander’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Land Rover service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
