1985 Jeep J10 Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1985 Jeep J10 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Jeep J10, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your J10 jolts, pulls 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 1985 Jeep J10 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your J10 suspension system needs repair, 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 Jeep J10’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1985 Jeep J10 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Jeep J10 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Jeep J10’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 J10 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my J10's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 J10? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
