Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Chevrolet Camaro

Is It Time For 1986 Chevrolet Camaro Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1986 Chevrolet Camaro, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Camaro bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1986 Chevrolet Camaro in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Camaro steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Camaro Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1986 Chevrolet Camaro’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 Chevrolet up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1986 Chevrolet Camaro’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Camaro shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Camaro’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1986 Camaro Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Camaro's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet Camaro? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Chevrolet Camaro 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 Camaro’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
