Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Ford Bronco II

Does Your 1988 Ford Bronco II Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1988 Ford Bronco II, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Bronco II 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 1988 Ford Bronco II, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Ford Bronco II 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.

Ford Bronco II Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Ford Bronco II’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Ford up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Bronco II’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Ford Bronco II shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Ford Bronco II’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
