Does Your 1989 Toyota Corolla Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 Toyota Corolla, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Corolla bounces, sways 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 1989 Toyota Corolla in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Toyota Corolla suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Toyota Corolla Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Toyota Corolla’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your Toyota up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Corolla’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Toyota Corolla shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Toyota Corolla’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 Corolla Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Toyota'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. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Toyota Corolla? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • When does Toyota Corolla power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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’ll follow Toyota service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
