1985 Cherokee Jeep Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1985 Jeep Cherokee Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1985 Jeep Cherokee, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cherokee bounces, 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 1985 Jeep Cherokee, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 Jeep Cherokee’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Cherokee Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Jeep Cherokee suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Cherokee’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Jeep Cherokee shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Jeep Cherokee’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Cherokee Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Jeep's 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Jeep Cherokee 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Jeep Cherokee power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Cherokee is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
