1989 Chevrolet Caprice Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1989 Chevrolet Caprice Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1989 Chevrolet Caprice, 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 Caprice bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Chevrolet Caprice 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Chevrolet Caprice’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Chevrolet Caprice Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Chevrolet Caprice suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1989 Chevrolet Caprice shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Caprice shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Caprice’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
