Is It Time For 1985 Dodge Conquest Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Dodge Conquest, 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 Conquest feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1985 Dodge Conquest in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Dodge Conquest suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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 Conquest

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Dodge Conquest 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Conquest’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Dodge Conquest shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Dodge Conquest’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Conquest 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Dodge Conquest 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Dodge intended.
  • Does my Dodge Conquest power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Conquest is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Dodge's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
