Does Your 1983 Chevrolet Malibu Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1983 Chevrolet Malibu, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Malibu jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1983 Chevrolet Malibu in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Malibu 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 Malibu 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 Malibu Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1983 Chevrolet Malibu’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 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 Malibu’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Malibu shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Chevrolet Malibu suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1983 Malibu Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Chevrolet Malibu 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. 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 Malibu 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 follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
