When To Get 1986 Peugeot 505 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1986 Peugeot 505, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 505 jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1986 Peugeot 505 in for suspension and steering service. 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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Peugeot 505 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.

Peugeot 505 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1986 Peugeot 505’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1986 Peugeot 505 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Peugeot 505 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 505’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1986 Peugeot 505 Steering & Suspension

  • 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Peugeot 505 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Peugeot intended.
  • Does my Peugeot 505 power steering fluid need to be checked? 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 can fill it per Peugeot's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • Why does my Peugeot 505 bounce so much? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your 505 to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my 505 tilt forward when I hit the brakes? The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your 505's front end to dip forward. A damaged or faulty suspension system may fail to distribute the weight and force effectively, causing the front end to dip even more.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Peugeot 505 are bad? Worn 505 shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your 505 might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your 505 shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
