Suspension Service & Repair for 1984 Peugeot 505

Does Your 1984 Peugeot 505 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1984 Peugeot 505, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 505 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1984 Peugeot 505 in for steering and suspension services. 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, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Peugeot 505 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1984 Peugeot 505 suspension system. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1984 Peugeot 505 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Peugeot 505 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 Peugeot 505 suspension 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.

1984 505 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 505's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires 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? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Peugeot 505 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 505’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Peugeot's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
