1983 J10 Jeep Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1983 Jeep J10 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1983 Jeep J10, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your J10 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1983 Jeep J10 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Jeep J10’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep J10 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Jeep J10 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Jeep J10’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Jeep J10 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your J10’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1983 Jeep J10 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my J10's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Jeep J10? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Jeep J10 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
