1984 Cherokee Jeep Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1984 Jeep Cherokee Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1984 Jeep Cherokee, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Cherokee feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1984 Jeep Cherokee, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Cherokee suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Jeep Cherokee 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Jeep Cherokee

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1984 Jeep Cherokee 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1984 Jeep Cherokee shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Jeep Cherokee shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 Jeep Cherokee suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1984 Cherokee Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Jeep's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 Jeep Cherokee get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 Jeep intended.
  • When should I have my Jeep Cherokee power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Cherokee is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
