1983 Chrysler Imperial Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1983 Chrysler Imperial Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1983 Chrysler Imperial, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Imperial jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1983 Chrysler Imperial in for suspension and steering service. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Chrysler Imperial suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chrysler Imperial

Your 1983 Chrysler Imperial’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 limit vibration and keep your Chrysler up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1983 Chrysler Imperial shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Chrysler Imperial shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Chrysler Imperial suspension 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.

Questions About 1983 Chrysler Imperial Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Imperial's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Chrysler Imperial 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Chrysler Imperial power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Imperial is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Chrysler's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
