1986 Chrysler Laser Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1986 Chrysler Laser Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1986 Chrysler Laser, 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 Laser jolts, 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 1986 Chrysler Laser, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Chrysler Laser suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Chrysler Laser Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1986 Chrysler Laser’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 Laser’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Chrysler Laser shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Chrysler Laser’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1986 Laser Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chrysler'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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chrysler Laser? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Chrysler Laser power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Laser’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chrysler's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
