When does Suzuki recommend steering and suspension service for 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitaras?

Is It Time For 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Grand Vitara jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2011 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, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Grand Vitara suspension system needs repair, 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Suzuki Grand Vitara Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. 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. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Suzuki Grand Vitara shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Suzuki's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Suzuki intended.
  • 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 Grand Vitara is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Suzuki service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
