When you first drove your 1986 Jeep CJ7, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your CJ7 bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Jeep CJ7 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
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 dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 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.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Jeep CJ7’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 CJ7’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Jeep CJ7 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Jeep CJ7 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
When your 1986 CJ7’s steering and suspension gives you grief, turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care. From CV joints to coil springs, your Jeep will be in expert hands. Schedule an appointment today.
