Is the steering and suspension system in your Suzuki Grand Vitara due for service yet?

Does Your 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Grand Vitara feels bouncy, pulls 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 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Grand Vitara 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 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.

Suzuki Grand Vitara Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Suzuki Grand Vitara shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Suzuki's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 Grand Vitara? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 does Suzuki Grand Vitara power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
