Does Your 1983 Renault Fuego Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1983 Renault Fuego, 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 Fuego bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1983 Renault Fuego, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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 components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Renault Fuego suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Renault Fuego Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Renault Fuego’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1983 Renault Fuego shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Renault Fuego shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Renault Fuego’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1983 Fuego Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Renault's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Renault Fuego 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.
  • When should I have my Renault Fuego power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Fuego’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Renault's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • Why is my Renault Fuego bouncing excessively? Excessive bouncing in your Renault Fuego 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.
  • What can cause the front end of my Fuego to dip forward when I apply the brakes? The forward dip in the front end of your Fuego 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.
  • How do I know if I have worn Renault Fuego shocks? If your Fuego 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 Fuego might also feel like it sways or rolls as you turn.
