Not sure when or if your Saturn SW2’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1997 Saturn SW2 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1997 Saturn SW2, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your SW2 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1997 Saturn SW2, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your SW2 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Saturn SW2 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1997 Saturn SW2’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 getting your 1997 Saturn SW2’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Saturn SW2 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your SW2’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 SW2 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Saturn's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Saturn SW2 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Saturn intended.
  • When does Saturn SW2 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your SW2’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Saturn service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
