Does Your 1999 Saturn SW1 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1999 Saturn SW1, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your SW1 bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1999 Saturn SW1, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. 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 Saturn SW1’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Saturn SW1 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1999 Saturn SW1’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1999 Saturn SW1’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Saturn SW1 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1999 Saturn SW1 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1999 Saturn SW1 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my SW1's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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 SW1 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Saturn SW1 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 SW1 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Saturn's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • What can cause my Saturn SW1 to have a bouncy ride? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your SW1 to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my SW1 tilt forward when I hit the brakes? The forward dip in the front end of your SW1 when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my Saturn SW1 need replacing? Worn SW1 shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your SW1 might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your SW1 shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
