1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Grand Vitara jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara in for steering and suspension services. 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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Grand Vitara 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Suzuki Grand Vitara

Your 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Grand Vitara’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Suzuki Grand Vitara shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1999 Grand Vitara Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Suzuki Grand Vitara? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Suzuki Grand Vitara power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Suzuki's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
