When To Get 1990 Porsche 911 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1990 Porsche 911, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 911 feels bouncy, sways 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 1990 Porsche 911 in for steering and suspension services. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. 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 parts of your Porsche 911 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Porsche 911 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1990 Porsche 911’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1990 Porsche 911 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Porsche 911 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Porsche 911 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 911 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 help you notice when you need 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Porsche 911? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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.
  • Does my Porsche 911 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 911 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Porsche's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
