Suspension Service & Repair for 1994 Suzuki Sidekick

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1994 Suzuki Sidekick

When does Suzuki recommend steering and suspension service for 1994 Suzuki Sidekicks?

Does Your 1994 Suzuki Sidekick Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1994 Suzuki Sidekick, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Sidekick jolts, pulls 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 1994 Suzuki Sidekick in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 your Sidekick 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Suzuki Sidekick

Your 1994 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. 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 Sidekick’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Suzuki Sidekick shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1994 Suzuki Sidekick’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1994 Sidekick Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Suzuki's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Why should my Suzuki Sidekick get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 should I have my Suzuki Sidekick power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Sidekick’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
