2008 Land Rover LR3 Suspension Service & Repair

2008 Land Rover LR3 Maintenance Schedule

When does Land Rover recommend steering and suspension service for 2008 Land Rover LR3s?

Does Your 2008 Land Rover LR3 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2008 Land Rover LR3, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your LR3 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 Land Rover LR3 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 your LR3 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Land Rover LR3 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Land Rover LR3 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2008 Land Rover LR3’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Land Rover LR3 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your LR3’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2008 Land Rover LR3 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Land Rover's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Land Rover LR3? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 Land Rover intended.
  • When should I have my Land Rover LR3 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your LR3 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Land Rover service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
