Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Jeep Wagoneer

Is It Time For 1985 Jeep Wagoneer Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Jeep Wagoneer, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Wagoneer jolts, drifts 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 1985 Jeep Wagoneer in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Wagoneer steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Wagoneer Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 Jeep Wagoneer’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your Jeep up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1985 Jeep Wagoneer shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Jeep Wagoneer shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Jeep Wagoneer’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Wagoneer Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Jeep's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 Wagoneer? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Jeep Wagoneer power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Wagoneer’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
