Is It Time For 1989 Isuzu Impulse Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1989 Isuzu Impulse, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Impulse feels bouncy, sways 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 1989 Isuzu Impulse, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Isuzu Impulse suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Isuzu Impulse Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Isuzu Impulse suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Isuzu up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Impulse’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Isuzu Impulse shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Isuzu Impulse suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1989 Impulse Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Isuzu's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 Isuzu Impulse get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Isuzu Impulse power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Impulse is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Isuzu's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • What can cause my Isuzu Impulse to have a bouncy ride? Excessive bouncing in your Isuzu Impulse might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • Why does my Impulse front end dip forward when I brake? The forward dip in the front end of your Impulse 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.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Isuzu Impulse are bad? Worn shock absorbers can’t absorb road bumps well, making your Impulse feel like it’s leaning or swaying when you turn. You may also experience more shaking, rocking, or bouncing than usual as your Impulse travels over minor bumps.
