When you first drove your 1988 Dodge Colt, 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 Colt feels bouncy, sways 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 1988 Dodge Colt, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Dodge Colt’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Dodge Colt suspension system. 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 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 Colt’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. 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 1988 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.
