Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2003 Porsche 911

When should you have your 2003 Porsche 911 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2003 Porsche 911 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2003 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, 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 2003 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, 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 car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Porsche 911

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2003 Porsche 911 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2003 Porsche 911 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Porsche 911 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Porsche 911 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2003 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 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Porsche 911 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 top it off per Porsche's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
