1988 928 Porsche Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1988 Porsche 928 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1988 Porsche 928, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 928 jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 Porsche 928, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Porsche 928’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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Porsche up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1988 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 rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Porsche 928 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Porsche 928’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Porsche intended.
