1987 Jeep Wagoneer Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1987 Jeep Wagoneer Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1987 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, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1987 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 dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Wagoneer suspension system needs repair, 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Jeep Wagoneer Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Jeep Wagoneer suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1987 Jeep Wagoneer shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn 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. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 Wagoneer Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Jeep's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Jeep Wagoneer? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Wagoneer is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
