Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Jeep Wrangler

Does Your 1987 Jeep Wrangler Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1987 Jeep Wrangler, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Wrangler jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1987 Jeep Wrangler in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Wrangler steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Jeep Wrangler Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Jeep Wrangler’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 getting your 1987 Jeep Wrangler’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Jeep Wrangler shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Jeep Wrangler suspension 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.

1987 Wrangler Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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 Wrangler? 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 connect with the road how Jeep intended.
  • When does Jeep Wrangler 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Jeep service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
