Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Peugeot 505

Does Your 1985 Peugeot 505 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1985 Peugeot 505, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 505 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 1985 Peugeot 505, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Peugeot 505

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 Peugeot 505’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 505’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Peugeot 505 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Peugeot 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.

1985 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Peugeot intended.
  • When does Peugeot 505 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 505’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Peugeot's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
