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.
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.
