1983 Jeep CJ7 Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1983 Jeep CJ7 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1983 Jeep CJ7, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your CJ7 jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1983 Jeep CJ7, 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your CJ7 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your CJ7 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep CJ7 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Jeep CJ7 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 1983 Jeep CJ7 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Jeep CJ7 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Jeep CJ7 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1983 CJ7 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Jeep's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep CJ7? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Jeep intended.
  • When does Jeep CJ7 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your CJ7’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
