Does Your 1991 Isuzu Impulse Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1991 Isuzu Impulse, 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 Impulse bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 Isuzu Impulse, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Isuzu Impulse

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1991 Isuzu Impulse suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Isuzu Impulse shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1991 Isuzu Impulse’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1991 Impulse Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Isuzu's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Isuzu Impulse? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Isuzu intended.
  • When does Isuzu Impulse power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Isuzu's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • Why is my Isuzu Impulse bouncing excessively? If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your Impulse goes over a bump or dip, you may have a problem with your struts or shocks. Faulty shocks and struts can’t properly absorb road bumps, leading to a bouncy ride.
  • What can cause the front end of my Impulse to dip forward when I apply the brakes? 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.
  • What do worn Isuzu Impulse shocks feel like? Worn Impulse shock absorbers can cause your vehicle to feel like it's bouncing or hopping over bumps instead of absorbing the impacts smoothly. You may also experience more body roll when turning.
