Suspension Service & Repair for 1983 Peugeot 604

Does Your 1983 Peugeot 604 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1983 Peugeot 604, 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 604 feels bouncy, leans 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 1983 Peugeot 604 in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 604 suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Peugeot 604 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Peugeot 604 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1983 Peugeot 604’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 limit vibration and keep your Peugeot up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Peugeot 604’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Peugeot 604 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 604’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1983 604 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Peugeot's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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 604 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Peugeot intended.
  • When does Peugeot 604 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Peugeot service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
