2006 Suzuki XL-7 Suspension Service & Repair

2006 Suzuki XL-7 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2006 Suzuki XL-7 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2006 Suzuki XL-7 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2006 Suzuki XL-7, 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 XL-7 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2006 Suzuki XL-7, bring it 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your XL-7 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 XL-7 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Suzuki XL-7 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 Suzuki XL-7’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2006 Suzuki XL-7’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Suzuki XL-7 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Suzuki XL-7 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2006 XL-7 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Suzuki XL-7? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Suzuki XL-7 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your XL-7 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Suzuki's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
