1996 Suzuki Esteem Suspension Service & Repair

1996 Suzuki Esteem Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 1996 Suzuki Esteem suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1996 Suzuki Esteem Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1996 Suzuki Esteem, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Esteem bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1996 Suzuki Esteem 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Suzuki Esteem suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Suzuki Esteem

Your 1996 Suzuki Esteem’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Suzuki up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Suzuki Esteem shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Suzuki Esteem shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Suzuki Esteem suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1996 Esteem Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Suzuki'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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Suzuki Esteem? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Suzuki Esteem power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Esteem’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Suzuki's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
