2002 LW300 Saturn Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2002 Saturn LW300 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2002 Saturn LW300, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your LW300 bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2002 Saturn LW300 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel 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 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 LW300 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Saturn LW300

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Saturn LW300 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your LW300’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Saturn LW300 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Saturn LW300 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Saturn intended.
  • Does my Saturn LW300 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 LW300 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Saturn's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
