Suspension Service & Repair for 1983 Peugeot 505

Does Your 1983 Peugeot 505 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1983 Peugeot 505, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 505 jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1983 Peugeot 505 in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 505 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Peugeot 505’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Peugeot 505 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Peugeot 505’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Peugeot up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 505’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Peugeot 505 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 505’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.

1983 505 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Peugeot'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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Peugeot 505? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Peugeot 505 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 505’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Peugeot's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
