Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1998 Suzuki Esteem

When should you have your 1998 Suzuki Esteem suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1998 Suzuki Esteem Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1998 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 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1998 Suzuki Esteem, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Esteem suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Esteem steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Suzuki Esteem Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Suzuki Esteem’s suspension. 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 Suzuki up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Suzuki Esteem’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Suzuki Esteem shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Suzuki Esteem suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1998 Esteem Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Suzuki's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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 Esteem? 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 Esteem power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Esteem’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
