Is It Time For 1998 Toyota Corolla Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1998 Toyota Corolla, 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. Maybe your Corolla jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1998 Toyota Corolla in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Corolla steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Toyota Corolla Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Toyota Corolla suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1998 Toyota Corolla’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Toyota Corolla shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Corolla’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.

Questions About 1998 Toyota Corolla Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Toyota's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new 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 should my Toyota Corolla 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Toyota intended.
  • When should I have my Toyota Corolla power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Corolla is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Toyota's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
