1986 Corvette Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1986 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1986 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, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1986 Chevrolet Corvette, bring it 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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Corvette steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1986 Chevrolet Corvette’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Chevrolet Corvette shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Corvette shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Chevrolet Corvette’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1986 Corvette Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Chevrolet Corvette get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Chevrolet intended.
  • Does my Chevrolet Corvette power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Corvette’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
