Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Porsche 911

When To Get 1985 Porsche 911 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1985 Porsche 911, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 911 feels bouncy, leans 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 Porsche 911 in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 911 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Porsche 911’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Porsche 911

Your 1985 Porsche 911’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 limit vibration and keep your Porsche up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1985 Porsche 911 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Porsche 911 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Porsche 911’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1985 Porsche 911 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Porsche'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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Porsche 911? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 should I have my Porsche 911 power steering fluid checked? 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 Porsche service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
