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

Does Your 1990 Suzuki Samurai Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Suzuki Samurai, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Samurai bounces, drifts 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 1990 Suzuki Samurai in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Samurai 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 Samurai Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1990 Suzuki Samurai’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Suzuki up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1990 Suzuki Samurai shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Suzuki Samurai shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Suzuki Samurai’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 Samurai Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Suzuki's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Suzuki Samurai? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Suzuki intended.
  • When does Suzuki Samurai 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 Samurai’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
