1989 911 Porsche Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1989 Porsche 911 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1989 Porsche 911, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 911 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1989 Porsche 911, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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 dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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.

Porsche 911 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Porsche 911’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 Porsche 911’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Porsche 911 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Porsche 911’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1989 Porsche 911 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 911? 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 Porsche intended.
  • 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 911’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Porsche service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
