Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Jeep Wagoneer

When To Get 1986 Jeep Wagoneer Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1986 Jeep Wagoneer, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Wagoneer bounces, drifts 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 1986 Jeep Wagoneer in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. 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 parts of your Jeep Wagoneer 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 Wagoneer Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Jeep Wagoneer’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1986 Jeep Wagoneer’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Jeep Wagoneer shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Wagoneer’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1986 Jeep Wagoneer Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Jeep's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Jeep intended.
  • When does Jeep Wagoneer power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Wagoneer’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
