Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Jeep Cherokee

Is It Time For 1988 Jeep Cherokee Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1988 Jeep Cherokee, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Cherokee bounces, pulls 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 1988 Jeep Cherokee in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Cherokee suspension system needs repair, 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 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.

Jeep Cherokee Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Jeep Cherokee 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1988 Jeep Cherokee’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Jeep Cherokee shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cherokee’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1988 Jeep Cherokee Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cherokee's steering and 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Jeep Cherokee? 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 the tires connect with the road how Jeep intended.
  • 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
