When you first drove your 1989 Chevrolet Corvette, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Corvette feels bouncy, drifts 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 1989 Chevrolet Corvette, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Corvette’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Your 1989 Chevrolet Corvette’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Corvette’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side 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 1989 Chevrolet Corvette’s 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.
Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of steering or suspension problems with your 1989 Chevrolet Corvette. From shocks to ball joints, your Chevrolet will be in good hands. Schedule an appointment today.
