Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Jeep J20

Does Your 1988 Jeep J20 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1988 Jeep J20, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your J20 bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Jeep J20 in for steering and suspension services. 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 parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your J20 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Jeep J20’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 J20

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Jeep J20 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Jeep up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Jeep J20 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Jeep J20 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Jeep J20 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1988 J20 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my J20'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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep J20? 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 connect with the road how Jeep intended.
  • When should I have my Jeep J20 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your J20’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
