Is It Time For 2003 Suzuki XL-7 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2003 Suzuki XL-7, 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 XL-7 jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2003 Suzuki XL-7 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Suzuki XL-7’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Suzuki XL-7

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2003 Suzuki XL-7’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2003 Suzuki XL-7’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Suzuki XL-7 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Suzuki XL-7 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2003 Suzuki XL-7 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 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 XL-7 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 XL-7 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your XL-7’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Suzuki service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
