1986 Suzuki Samurai Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1986 Suzuki Samurai Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1986 Suzuki Samurai, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Samurai jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Suzuki Samurai in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Samurai suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Suzuki Samurai’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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 Suzuki Samurai

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Suzuki Samurai suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Suzuki up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Suzuki Samurai shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Suzuki Samurai shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Samurai’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1986 Suzuki Samurai Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Suzuki's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Suzuki Samurai 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Suzuki intended.
  • When should I have my Suzuki Samurai power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
