2012 Suzuki Equator Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2012 Suzuki Equator Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Suzuki Equator, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Equator feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2012 Suzuki Equator in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Equator suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Equator 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.

Suzuki Equator Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Suzuki Equator’s suspension. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Suzuki up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2012 Suzuki Equator’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Suzuki Equator shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Suzuki Equator suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 Equator Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Suzuki's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Suzuki Equator? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Suzuki intended.
  • When should I have my Suzuki Equator power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Equator is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Suzuki service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
