1989 Jeep Wrangler Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1989 Jeep Wrangler Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1989 Jeep Wrangler, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Wrangler bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1989 Jeep Wrangler, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Wrangler 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 Wrangler Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1989 Jeep Wrangler’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 limit vibration and keep your Jeep up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1989 Jeep Wrangler shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Jeep Wrangler shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Jeep Wrangler’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 Wrangler Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Jeep Wrangler? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Jeep Wrangler power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Wrangler’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
