Does Your 1985 Plymouth Caravelle Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Plymouth Caravelle, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Caravelle bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1985 Plymouth Caravelle in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Caravelle suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Plymouth Caravelle 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.

Plymouth Caravelle Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1985 Plymouth Caravelle’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 Plymouth Caravelle’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Plymouth Caravelle shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Plymouth Caravelle’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1985 Plymouth Caravelle Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Caravelle's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Plymouth Caravelle? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Plymouth intended.
  • When does Plymouth Caravelle 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 can fill it per Plymouth's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • Why is my Plymouth Caravelle bouncing excessively? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my Caravelle's nose dive down when I hit the brakes? The forward dip in the front end of your Caravelle when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my Plymouth Caravelle need replacing? Worn Caravelle shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Caravelle might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Caravelle shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
