1998 911 Porsche Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1998 Porsche 911 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1998 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, 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 1998 Porsche 911 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 911 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 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Porsche 911’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 getting your 1998 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 can all point to issues with your Porsche 911 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Porsche 911 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1998 Porsche 911 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Porsche 911 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 911 power steering fluid 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.
