When To Get 1990 Jeep Wrangler Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1990 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 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 Jeep Wrangler, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Wrangler steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Jeep Wrangler Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Jeep Wrangler’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 1990 Jeep Wrangler’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Jeep Wrangler shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Wrangler’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 Wrangler 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Jeep Wrangler 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way 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 top it off per Jeep's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
