1989 Jeep Cherokee Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1989 Jeep Cherokee Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1989 Jeep Cherokee, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Cherokee bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Jeep Cherokee in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Cherokee steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Jeep Cherokee Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1989 Jeep Cherokee’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Jeep up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 Jeep Cherokee’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Jeep Cherokee shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Jeep Cherokee suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1989 Cherokee Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Jeep's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep Cherokee? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Jeep Cherokee power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Cherokee’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
