1983 Cavalier Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1983 Chevrolet Cavalier Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1983 Chevrolet Cavalier, 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 Cavalier bounces, leans 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 1983 Chevrolet Cavalier in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Cavalier suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Chevrolet Cavalier’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Cavalier Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Chevrolet Cavalier suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Chevrolet Cavalier’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Cavalier shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Chevrolet Cavalier suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
