Is It Time For 1987 Dodge Grand Caravan Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1987 Dodge Grand Caravan, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Grand Caravan bounces, 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 Grand Caravan, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Grand Caravan suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Dodge Grand Caravan’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Dodge Grand Caravan

Your 1987 Dodge Grand Caravan’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 Grand Caravan’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Dodge Grand Caravan shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Dodge Grand Caravan’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1987 Dodge Grand Caravan Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Dodge's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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 Grand Caravan? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Dodge intended.
  • When does Dodge Grand Caravan power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Grand Caravan is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Dodge's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
