1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Grand Wagoneer bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, bring it 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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Jeep Grand Wagoneer suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Grand Wagoneer Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 Grand Wagoneer’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Jeep Grand Wagoneer shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Grand Wagoneer’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 Grand Wagoneer Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Grand Wagoneer's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep Grand Wagoneer? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Jeep intended.
  • Does my Jeep Grand Wagoneer power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Grand Wagoneer is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
