1987 Caprice Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1987 Chevrolet Caprice Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1987 Chevrolet Caprice, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Caprice bounces, drifts 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 1987 Chevrolet Caprice, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Caprice steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet Caprice

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Chevrolet Caprice suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. 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. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Caprice shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Chevrolet Caprice’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1987 Chevrolet Caprice Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 should my Chevrolet Caprice 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Chevrolet Caprice 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 Caprice is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
