When To Get 1987 Dodge Charger Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1987 Dodge Charger, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Charger bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Dodge Charger, 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Dodge Charger 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 Dodge Charger

Your 1987 Dodge Charger’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 Dodge up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Charger’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Dodge Charger shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Dodge Charger’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1987 Dodge Charger Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Charger's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Dodge Charger? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 Dodge Charger power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Charger is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Dodge's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why is my Dodge Charger bouncing excessively? If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your Charger goes over a bump or dip, you may have a problem with your struts or shocks. Faulty shocks and struts can’t properly absorb road bumps, leading to a bouncy ride.
  • Why does my Charger's nose dive down when I hit the brakes? The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your Charger's front end to dip forward. A damaged or faulty suspension system may fail to distribute the weight and force effectively, causing the front end to dip even more.
  • How do I know if I have worn Dodge Charger shocks? Worn Charger shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Charger might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Charger shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
