2018 718 Boxster Porsche Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 718 Boxster feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster in for steering and suspension services. 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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 718 Boxster suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Porsche 718 Boxster’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Porsche 718 Boxster Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Porsche 718 Boxster shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 718 Boxster’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Porsche's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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 Porsche 718 Boxster? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Porsche 718 Boxster power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Porsche service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
