Is It Time For 1984 Dodge Colt Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1984 Dodge Colt, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Colt feels bouncy, leans 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 1984 Dodge Colt in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Dodge Colt’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Dodge Colt

Your 1984 Dodge Colt’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1984 Dodge Colt shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Dodge Colt shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1984 Dodge Colt’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1984 Colt Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Dodge's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Dodge Colt 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 connect with the road how Dodge intended.
  • Does my Dodge Colt 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 Colt is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Dodge service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
