Is It Time For 2008 Suzuki XL-7 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2008 Suzuki XL-7, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your XL-7 feels bouncy, drifts 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 2008 Suzuki XL-7 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 XL-7 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 XL-7

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Suzuki XL-7 suspension system. 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 2008 Suzuki XL-7 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Suzuki XL-7 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2008 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.

2008 XL-7 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Suzuki XL-7? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Suzuki XL-7 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • What can cause my Suzuki XL-7 to have a bouncy ride? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your XL-7 to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my XL-7's nose dive down when I hit the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your XL-7 combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Suzuki XL-7 are bad? Worn shock absorbers can’t absorb road bumps well, making your XL-7 feel like it’s leaning or swaying when you turn. You may also experience more shaking, rocking, or bouncing than usual as your XL-7 travels over minor bumps.
