When To Get 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2003 Mitsubishi Montero, 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. Maybe your Montero jolts, 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 2003 Mitsubishi Montero in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mitsubishi Montero’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mitsubishi Montero Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2003 Mitsubishi Montero suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 2003 Mitsubishi Montero shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mitsubishi Montero shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Mitsubishi Montero suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2003 Montero Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mitsubishi's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 Mitsubishi Montero? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Mitsubishi intended.
  • When should I have my Mitsubishi Montero power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Montero is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mitsubishi's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
