Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Mitsubishi Montero

Does Your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Montero jolts, drifts 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 1985 Mitsubishi Montero, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Mitsubishi Montero suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Mitsubishi Montero Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Mitsubishi up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Mitsubishi Montero shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Montero’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.

Questions About 1985 Mitsubishi Montero Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mitsubishi's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mitsubishi Montero? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • When does Mitsubishi Montero 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 Montero is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Mitsubishi's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
