Does Your 1992 Dodge Colt Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1992 Dodge Colt, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Colt feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1992 Dodge Colt, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1992 Dodge Colt suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Dodge Colt shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1992 Dodge Colt’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1992 Colt Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 alert you to the need for 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? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires 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? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Colt is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Dodge's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
