Is It Time For 2004 Suzuki XL-7 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2004 Suzuki XL-7, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your XL-7 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2004 Suzuki XL-7 in for steering and suspension services. 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 dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 XL-7 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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

Your 2004 Suzuki XL-7’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2004 Suzuki XL-7’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Suzuki XL-7 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Suzuki XL-7’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.

2004 XL-7 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Suzuki's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 XL-7? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your XL-7 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
