Does Your 1986 Plymouth Turismo 2.2 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1986 Plymouth Turismo 2.2, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Turismo 2.2 feels bouncy, sways 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 1986 Plymouth Turismo 2.2 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Turismo 2.2 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Plymouth Turismo 2.2 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Plymouth Turismo 2.2 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Turismo 2.2’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Plymouth Turismo 2.2 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Turismo 2.2’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1986 Turismo 2.2 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Turismo 2.2'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 Turismo 2.2 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Plymouth intended.
  • When does Plymouth Turismo 2.2 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Plymouth's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • What can cause my Plymouth Turismo 2.2 to have a bouncy ride? Excessive bouncing in your Plymouth Turismo 2.2 might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • Why does my Turismo 2.2 tilt forward when I hit the brakes? The forward dip in the front end of your Turismo 2.2 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 do worn Plymouth Turismo 2.2 shocks feel like? If your Turismo 2.2 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 Turismo 2.2 might also feel like it sways or rolls as you turn.
