1983 J20 Jeep Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1983 Jeep J20 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1983 Jeep J20, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your J20 jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1983 Jeep J20 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your J20 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Jeep J20

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Jeep J20’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1983 Jeep J20 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 can all point to issues with your Jeep J20 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Jeep J20 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1983 Jeep J20 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Jeep's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Jeep J20 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Jeep intended.
  • When does Jeep J20 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 J20 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
