Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Chevrolet Chevette

Is It Time For 1986 Chevrolet Chevette Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1986 Chevrolet Chevette, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Chevette feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Chevrolet Chevette in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Chevette suspension system needs repair, 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 Chevette’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 Chevette Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1986 Chevrolet Chevette’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1986 Chevrolet Chevette’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Chevette shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Chevrolet Chevette suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
