Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Chevrolet Caprice

Does Your 1985 Chevrolet Caprice Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Chevrolet Caprice, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Caprice feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1985 Chevrolet Caprice in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, 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 all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Chevrolet Caprice suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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

Your 1985 Chevrolet Caprice’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chevrolet up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Caprice’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Caprice shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1985 Chevrolet Caprice suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1985 Caprice Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 Caprice? 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 Chevrolet intended.
  • When does Chevrolet Caprice power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
