Is It Time For 1985 Toyota Corolla Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Toyota Corolla, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Corolla bounces, drifts 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 1985 Toyota Corolla in for suspension and steering service. 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, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Toyota Corolla 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.

Toyota Corolla Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1985 Toyota Corolla’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 getting your 1985 Toyota Corolla’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Toyota Corolla shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Corolla’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1985 Toyota Corolla Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Toyota's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Toyota Corolla? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Toyota Corolla power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Corolla’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Toyota service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
