During the first few years you had your 1986 Renault R18i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your R18i feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Renault R18i in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 your R18i 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.
Your 1986 Renault R18i’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Renault R18i shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Renault R18i shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your R18i’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
