1988 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1988 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1988 Chevrolet Corvette, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Corvette bounces, drifts 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 1988 Chevrolet Corvette, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Corvette Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Chevrolet Corvette suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Chevrolet up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Corvette’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Corvette shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Chevrolet Corvette suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 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 should my Chevrolet Corvette get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet Corvette power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
