Is It Time For 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Land Cruiser feels bouncy, 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 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Land Cruiser 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.

Toyota Land Cruiser Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser suspension system. 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 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Toyota Land Cruiser shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser’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.
