When To Get 1998 Suzuki Sidekick Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1998 Suzuki Sidekick, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. 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 1998 Suzuki Sidekick, bring it 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Sidekick suspension system needs repair, 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Suzuki Sidekick

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Suzuki Sidekick’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sidekick’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Suzuki Sidekick shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Sidekick’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1998 Suzuki Sidekick Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Sidekick's steering and 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Suzuki Sidekick? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Suzuki Sidekick 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 Sidekick’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
