Is It Time For 2002 Suzuki Esteem Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2002 Suzuki Esteem, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Esteem bounces, leans 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 2002 Suzuki Esteem in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Suzuki Esteem Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Suzuki Esteem suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Suzuki Esteem’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Suzuki Esteem shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Esteem’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
