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

When To Get 2002 Suzuki Vitara Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2002 Suzuki Vitara, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Vitara jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2002 Suzuki Vitara in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Suzuki Vitara 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 Vitara Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2002 Suzuki Vitara’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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Vitara’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Suzuki Vitara shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2002 Suzuki Vitara’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2002 Suzuki Vitara Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Suzuki's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Suzuki Vitara 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Suzuki intended.
  • When does Suzuki Vitara 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 Vitara’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
