Is It Time For 2002 Toyota Avalon Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2002 Toyota Avalon, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Avalon bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Toyota Avalon, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 parts of your Toyota Avalon 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.

Toyota Avalon Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2002 Toyota Avalon’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Toyota up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Toyota Avalon’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Toyota Avalon shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2002 Toyota Avalon’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Avalon Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Toyota's 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 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 Toyota Avalon? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Toyota intended.
  • When does Toyota Avalon power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Avalon is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Toyota's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
