When To Get 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Land Cruiser feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel 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 Land Cruiser 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 Land Cruiser Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Toyota Land Cruiser shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Land Cruiser Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Toyota'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 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 Land Cruiser? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Toyota Land Cruiser power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Land Cruiser’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Toyota service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
