Is It Time For 1987 Dodge Diplomat Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1987 Dodge Diplomat, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Diplomat jolts, 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 1987 Dodge Diplomat, bring it 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Diplomat suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Diplomat steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 Diplomat

Your 1987 Dodge Diplomat’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 Diplomat’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 indicators of worn Dodge Diplomat shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Dodge Diplomat’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1987 Dodge Diplomat Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Diplomat's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Dodge Diplomat 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Dodge intended.
  • When should I have my Dodge Diplomat power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Diplomat’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Dodge service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
