Is the steering and suspension system in your Saturn SC1 due for service yet?

Is It Time For 1998 Saturn SC1 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1998 Saturn SC1, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your SC1 jolts, 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 1998 Saturn SC1 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 your Saturn SC1’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Saturn SC1 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Saturn SC1’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Saturn up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Saturn SC1’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 forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Saturn SC1 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Saturn SC1’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1998 SC1 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Saturn's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Saturn SC1 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Saturn intended.
  • When does Saturn SC1 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Saturn's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
