Does Your 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Grand Vitara jolts, sways 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 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Suzuki Grand Vitara 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.

Suzuki Grand Vitara Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2000 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 limit vibration and keep your Suzuki up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Suzuki Grand Vitara shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Grand Vitara’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Grand Vitara's steering and 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.
  • Why should my Suzuki Grand Vitara 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Suzuki intended.
  • Does my Suzuki Grand Vitara 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 top it off per Suzuki's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
