1984 Jeep J20 Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1984 Jeep J20 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1984 Jeep J20, 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. Perhaps your J20 feels bouncy, 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 1984 Jeep J20 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your J20 suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Jeep J20’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 J20 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1984 Jeep J20’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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1984 Jeep J20’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Jeep J20 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1984 Jeep J20’s 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.

1984 J20 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my J20'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. 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. 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Jeep intended.
  • When should I have my Jeep J20 power steering fluid checked? 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 can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
