1984 Caprice Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1984 Chevrolet Caprice Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1984 Chevrolet Caprice, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Caprice jolts, sways 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 1984 Chevrolet Caprice, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 your Caprice 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet Caprice

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1984 Chevrolet Caprice’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Caprice’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Caprice shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 Chevrolet Caprice suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1984 Caprice Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chevrolet's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet Caprice? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Chevrolet Caprice 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 Caprice is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
