2000 LS1 Saturn Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2000 Saturn LS1 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2000 Saturn LS1, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your LS1 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2000 Saturn LS1 in for suspension and steering service. 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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your LS1 suspension system needs repair, 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 Saturn LS1 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Saturn LS1 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2000 Saturn LS1’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 Saturn up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2000 Saturn LS1 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 signs of worn Saturn LS1 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2000 Saturn LS1 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2000 LS1 Steering & Suspension Q&A

A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.

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.
  • When does Saturn LS1 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Saturn's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
