Is It Time For 2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2004 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 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, 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 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Suzuki Grand Vitara Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara shock and strut replacement 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 Grand Vitara shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 Grand Vitara Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Suzuki's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Suzuki Grand Vitara power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Grand Vitara’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Suzuki service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
