1987 Chevrolet Cavalier Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Cavalier feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Chevrolet Cavalier’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 Cavalier Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Cavalier’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Cavalier shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1987 Cavalier Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet Cavalier? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Chevrolet Cavalier 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 Cavalier’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
