2009 Suzuki XL-7 Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2009 Suzuki XL-7 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2009 Suzuki XL-7, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your XL-7 bounces, 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 2009 Suzuki XL-7 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Suzuki XL-7 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2009 Suzuki XL-7’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 2009 Suzuki XL-7’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Suzuki XL-7 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2009 Suzuki XL-7’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2009 XL-7 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my XL-7's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 should my Suzuki XL-7 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 the tires connect with the road how 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Suzuki's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
