Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Peugeot 505

Does Your 1989 Peugeot 505 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1989 Peugeot 505, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 505 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1989 Peugeot 505 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 505 suspension system needs repair, 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Peugeot 505 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Peugeot 505 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 1989 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 back and forth could all be signs of worn Peugeot 505 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 505’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1989 Peugeot 505 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Peugeot's 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.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 505 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Peugeot service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
