1986 Mitsubishi Montero Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1986 Mitsubishi Montero Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1986 Mitsubishi Montero, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Montero jolts, sways 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 Montero in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil 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 your Montero 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 Mitsubishi Montero’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Mitsubishi Montero

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Mitsubishi Montero suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Mitsubishi Montero shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mitsubishi Montero shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Mitsubishi Montero suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
