Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Land Rover Range Rover

Does Your 1988 Land Rover Range Rover Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1988 Land Rover Range Rover, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Range Rover bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 Land Rover Range Rover, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Range Rover suspension system needs repair, 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 Range Rover 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.

Land Rover Range Rover Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Land Rover Range Rover’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 1988 Land Rover Range Rover shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Land Rover Range Rover shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Land Rover Range Rover suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1988 Range Rover Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Land Rover's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Land Rover Range Rover? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Land Rover Range Rover power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Range Rover’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Land Rover service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
