Is It Time For 1988 Plymouth Caravelle Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1988 Plymouth Caravelle, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Caravelle bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 Plymouth Caravelle, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Caravelle 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 Plymouth Caravelle 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.

Plymouth Caravelle Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1988 Plymouth Caravelle’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1988 Plymouth Caravelle shock and strut replacement 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 signs of worn Plymouth Caravelle shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Plymouth Caravelle suspension 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.

Questions About 1988 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 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 Plymouth Caravelle 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Plymouth Caravelle power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Caravelle is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Plymouth's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why does my Plymouth Caravelle bounce so much? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Caravelle to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my Caravelle front end dip forward when I brake? 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 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.
