Is It Time For 1997 Toyota Camry Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1997 Toyota Camry, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Camry feels bouncy, 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 1997 Toyota Camry, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, 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 issue and, if your Camry 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 parts of your Toyota Camry 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.

Toyota Camry Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1997 Toyota Camry’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. 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 1997 Toyota Camry’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Toyota Camry shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Toyota Camry’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.

1997 Camry Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Toyota's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Toyota Camry? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Toyota intended.
  • Does my Toyota Camry power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Camry is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Toyota's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
