1988 Montero Mitsubishi Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1988 Mitsubishi Montero Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1988 Mitsubishi Montero, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Montero feels bouncy, sways 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 1988 Mitsubishi Montero, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Montero suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Mitsubishi Montero’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 Montero Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Mitsubishi Montero’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 1988 Mitsubishi Montero’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Mitsubishi Montero shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Montero’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 Montero Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Mitsubishi Montero 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Mitsubishi intended.
  • When does Mitsubishi Montero power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Montero is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Mitsubishi service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
