Is It Time For 1983 Dodge Colt Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1983 Dodge Colt, 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 Colt bounces, sways 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 Dodge Colt 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, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Colt 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 Colt 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.

Dodge Colt Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Dodge Colt suspension system. 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 Dodge up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Dodge Colt’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Dodge Colt shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Dodge Colt’s 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.

1983 Colt Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Colt's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Dodge Colt? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Dodge intended.
  • When does Dodge Colt 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 Colt is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Dodge's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
