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

Is It Time For 1990 Suzuki Sidekick Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1990 Suzuki Sidekick, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Sidekick bounces, leans 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 1990 Suzuki Sidekick in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Suzuki Sidekick suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Suzuki Sidekick Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1990 Suzuki Sidekick’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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sidekick’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Suzuki Sidekick shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Suzuki Sidekick’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 Sidekick Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Sidekick's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Suzuki Sidekick? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Suzuki intended.
  • When does Suzuki Sidekick 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 Sidekick is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Suzuki's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
