1985 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1985 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1985 Chevrolet Corvette, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Corvette bounces, sways 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 1985 Chevrolet Corvette, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Corvette suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Corvette steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet Corvette

Your 1985 Chevrolet Corvette’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 Corvette’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Corvette shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Chevrolet Corvette’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Corvette 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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 Corvette? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet Corvette power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
