1985 Chevette Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1985 Chevrolet Chevette Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Chevrolet Chevette, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Chevette bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1985 Chevrolet Chevette in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your Chevrolet Chevette suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Chevette Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Chevrolet Chevette 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Chevette’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Chevette shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Chevrolet Chevette’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1985 Chevrolet Chevette Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chevrolet's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet Chevette? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Chevrolet intended.
  • Does my Chevrolet Chevette power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Chevette’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
