1988 Wagoneer Jeep Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Wagoneer feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel 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 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 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer’s suspension. 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 1988 Jeep Wagoneer shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Jeep Wagoneer shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer suspension 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.

1988 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 should my Jeep Wagoneer get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
