Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Is It Time For 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1988 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, leans 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 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Grand Wagoneer suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Grand Wagoneer 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 Grand Wagoneer Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. 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, or rocking forward and backward 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 routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Steering & Suspension

  • 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 help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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.
