Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1997 Suzuki Esteem

When should you have your 1997 Suzuki Esteem suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1997 Suzuki Esteem Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1997 Suzuki Esteem, 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 Esteem bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1997 Suzuki Esteem in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Suzuki Esteem suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Suzuki Esteem

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1997 Suzuki Esteem suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1997 Suzuki Esteem shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Suzuki Esteem shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Suzuki Esteem’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1997 Esteem Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Esteem's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Suzuki Esteem 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Suzuki intended.
  • Does my Suzuki Esteem power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Suzuki service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
