1985 Jeep Scrambler Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1985 Jeep Scrambler Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Jeep Scrambler, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Scrambler feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1985 Jeep Scrambler in for suspension and steering service. 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 parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Jeep Scrambler suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Scrambler Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Jeep Scrambler suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1985 Jeep Scrambler shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. 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 smart move to get your Scrambler’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Scrambler Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Jeep's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Jeep Scrambler? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Jeep intended.
  • When does Jeep Scrambler power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Scrambler is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
