When To Get 1983 Renault Alliance Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1983 Renault Alliance, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Alliance jolts, sways 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 1983 Renault Alliance, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your Alliance steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Renault Alliance Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1983 Renault Alliance’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 Alliance’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Renault Alliance shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Renault Alliance’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1983 Alliance Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Alliance's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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 Renault Alliance? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Renault Alliance power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Alliance is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Renault's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • What can cause my Renault Alliance to have a bouncy ride? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Alliance to bounce more than usual.
  • What can cause the front end of my Alliance to dip forward when I apply the brakes? 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 Renault Alliance need replacing? Worn Alliance shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Alliance might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Alliance shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
