Is It Time For 1998 Saturn SW2 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1998 Saturn SW2, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your SW2 bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Saturn SW2 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Saturn SW2 suspension system. 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 1998 Saturn SW2’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Saturn SW2 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Saturn SW2 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.

1998 SW2 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my SW2's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Saturn SW2? 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 SW2 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Saturn's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
