1986 Cordia Mitsubishi Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Cordia feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia 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, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mitsubishi Cordia’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mitsubishi Cordia Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Mitsubishi Cordia shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1986 Cordia Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cordia's steering and 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 Mitsubishi Cordia get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Mitsubishi intended.
  • Does my Mitsubishi Cordia power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Cordia’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Mitsubishi's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
