1985 Encore Renault Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1985 Renault Encore Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1985 Renault Encore, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Encore bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1985 Renault Encore, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Encore suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Encore 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Renault Encore

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Renault Encore suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Encore’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Renault Encore shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Renault Encore’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1985 Renault Encore Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Renault's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 should my Renault Encore get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • Does my Renault Encore power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Encore is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Renault service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
