Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Porsche 928

Does Your 1985 Porsche 928 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Porsche 928, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 928 feels bouncy, leans 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 1985 Porsche 928, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 928 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Porsche 928’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Porsche 928 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1985 Porsche 928’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Porsche up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1985 Porsche 928 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Porsche 928 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Porsche 928’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 928 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 928's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Porsche 928 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 does Porsche 928 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 928’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Porsche service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
