Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Peugeot 505

Does Your 1987 Peugeot 505 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1987 Peugeot 505, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 505 bounces, 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 1987 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your Peugeot 505 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Peugeot 505 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Peugeot 505 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 1987 Peugeot 505 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators 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. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 505 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Peugeot's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
