Is It Time For 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. 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 problems is a good time to bring your 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Suzuki Grand Vitara’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Suzuki Grand Vitara

Your 2009 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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 getting your 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Suzuki Grand Vitara shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
