1989 928 Porsche Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1989 Porsche 928 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1989 Porsche 928, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 928 feels bouncy, pulls 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 1989 Porsche 928, bring it 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, shock absorbers, 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 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 your Porsche 928’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Porsche 928 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1989 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 928’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Porsche 928 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 928’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 928 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Porsche 928? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Porsche intended.
  • Does my Porsche 928 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 928 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Porsche's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
