1984 Jeep J10 Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1984 Jeep J10 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1984 Jeep J10, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your J10 bounces, pulls 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 1984 Jeep J10, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your J10 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 J10 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1984 Jeep J10’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Jeep up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your J10’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Jeep J10 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1984 Jeep J10’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1984 J10 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my J10's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 J10? 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 J10 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your J10 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
