1989 Chevrolet Cavalier Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Cavalier bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Cavalier Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier 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 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. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Cavalier shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
