1995 Suzuki Sidekick Maintenance Schedule

When does Suzuki recommend steering and suspension service for 1995 Suzuki Sidekicks?

Is It Time For 1995 Suzuki Sidekick Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1995 Suzuki Sidekick, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Sidekick feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1995 Suzuki Sidekick, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Sidekick suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Suzuki Sidekick suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Suzuki Sidekick Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1995 Suzuki Sidekick’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1995 Suzuki Sidekick shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Suzuki Sidekick shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1995 Suzuki Sidekick suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1995 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. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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.
  • When should I have my Suzuki Sidekick power steering fluid checked? 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 follow Suzuki service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
