When To Get 1990 Jeep Cherokee Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1990 Jeep Cherokee, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cherokee jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 Jeep Cherokee in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Cherokee Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1990 Jeep Cherokee’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1990 Jeep Cherokee shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Jeep Cherokee shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Jeep Cherokee’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 Cherokee Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Jeep's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your 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 follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
