Is It Time For 1989 Dodge Colt Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1989 Dodge Colt, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Colt jolts, 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 1989 Dodge Colt in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 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.

Dodge Colt Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1989 Dodge Colt’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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1989 Dodge Colt shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Dodge Colt shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Dodge Colt suspension 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.

1989 Colt Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Dodge's 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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.
