Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Does Your 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Grand Wagoneer feels bouncy, 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 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Grand Wagoneer suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Grand Wagoneer 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 Grand Wagoneer Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer’s suspension. 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 getting your 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Jeep Grand Wagoneer shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1986 Grand Wagoneer 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 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Jeep Grand Wagoneer? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Jeep intended.
  • When does Jeep Grand Wagoneer power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months.
