1987 911 Porsche Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1987 Porsche 911 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1987 Porsche 911, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 911 jolts, 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 1987 Porsche 911 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Porsche 911 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Porsche 911 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1987 Porsche 911 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Porsche 911 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Porsche 911’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1987 911 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 911's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Porsche 911? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Porsche's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
