Does Your 1990 Peugeot 405 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1990 Peugeot 405, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 405 jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 Peugeot 405 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, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 405 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Peugeot 405 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Peugeot 405

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Peugeot 405’s suspension. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1990 Peugeot 405 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Peugeot 405 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 405’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 405 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 405's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Peugeot 405? 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 Peugeot intended.
  • When should I have my Peugeot 405 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 405 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Peugeot's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why is my Peugeot 405 bouncing so much? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your 405 to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my 405 tilt forward when I hit the brakes? The forward dip in the front end of your 405 when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my Peugeot 405 need replacing? Worn 405 shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your 405 might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your 405 shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
