1987 J10 Jeep Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1987 Jeep J10 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1987 Jeep J10, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your J10 feels bouncy, leans 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 1987 Jeep J10 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Jeep J10

Your 1987 Jeep J10’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1987 Jeep J10 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Jeep J10 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your J10’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
