1988 Chrysler LeBaron Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1988 Chrysler LeBaron Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1988 Chrysler LeBaron, 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 LeBaron feels bouncy, 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 1988 Chrysler LeBaron in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your LeBaron suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your LeBaron 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.

Chrysler LeBaron Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Chrysler LeBaron’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chrysler up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1988 Chrysler LeBaron’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Chrysler LeBaron shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Chrysler LeBaron suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1988 LeBaron Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my LeBaron's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Why should my Chrysler LeBaron get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chrysler intended.
  • When does Chrysler LeBaron power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your LeBaron’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chrysler's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
