Suspension Service & Repair for 1983 Jeep Scrambler

Does Your 1983 Jeep Scrambler Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1983 Jeep Scrambler, 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. Maybe your Scrambler bounces, sways 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 1983 Jeep Scrambler in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Scrambler 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 Scrambler’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.

Jeep Scrambler Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1983 Jeep Scrambler’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Jeep up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Scrambler’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Jeep Scrambler shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Jeep Scrambler’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
