When you first bought your 1986 Renault Encore, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Encore jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Renault Encore in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Renault Encore 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.
Your 1986 Renault Encore’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Encore’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Renault Encore shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Renault Encore suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
