Is It Time For 1989 Geo Tracker Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1989 Geo Tracker, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Tracker jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Geo Tracker in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 Tracker steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Geo Tracker Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Geo Tracker suspension system. 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 Geo up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 Geo Tracker’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Geo Tracker shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Tracker’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 Tracker Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Tracker's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Geo Tracker? 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 Geo intended.
  • Does my Geo Tracker power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Tracker is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Geo's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • Why is my Geo Tracker bouncing so much? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Tracker to bounce more than usual.
  • What can cause the front end of my Tracker to dip forward when I apply the brakes? The forward dip in the front end of your Tracker when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my Geo Tracker need replacing? Worn Tracker shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Tracker might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Tracker shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
