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.
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.
