Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Jeep Wrangler

When To Get 1988 Jeep Wrangler Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1988 Jeep Wrangler, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Wrangler jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Jeep Wrangler in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Wrangler suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Jeep Wrangler 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 Wrangler Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Jeep Wrangler suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Wrangler’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Jeep Wrangler shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Jeep Wrangler’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.

Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Jeep Wrangler power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Jeep's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
