When To Get 1993 Saturn SL2 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1993 Saturn SL2, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your SL2 jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1993 Saturn SL2 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your SL2 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Saturn SL2 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1993 Saturn SL2’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. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your SL2’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Saturn SL2 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1993 Saturn SL2 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1993 Saturn SL2 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Saturn's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 should my Saturn SL2 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Saturn intended.
  • When should I have my Saturn SL2 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your SL2 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Saturn service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
