Is It Time For 1988 Peugeot 505 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1988 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. Maybe your 505 bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Peugeot 505 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 505 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 505 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Peugeot 505

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Peugeot 505’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. 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. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Peugeot 505 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Peugeot 505 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 505 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Peugeot's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Peugeot 505? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • 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 is my Peugeot 505 bouncing so much? If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your 505 goes over a bump or dip, you may have a problem with your struts or shocks. Faulty shocks and struts can’t properly absorb road bumps, leading to a bouncy ride.
  • Why does my 505 tilt forward when I hit the brakes? When you brake, the forward momentum combined with your vehicle's weight sends a lot of force to the vehicle's front end. A bad suspension can cause all that weight and force to push the front end downward.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my Peugeot 505 need replacing? If your 505 shock absorbers are worn out, they won’t be able to properly dampen road bumps. You might experience a bouncy or unstable ride, especially over bumps or rough roads. Your 505 might also feel like it sways or rolls as you turn.
