Is It Time For 1986 Toyota Van Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1986 Toyota Van, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Van bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1986 Toyota Van in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Van suspension system needs repair, 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 your Toyota Van’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Toyota Van Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Toyota Van’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1986 Toyota Van’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Toyota Van shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Toyota Van’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1986 Van Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Toyota's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Toyota Van get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 the tires connect with the road how Toyota intended.
  • When should I have my Toyota Van power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Van’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Toyota service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
