1986 944 Porsche Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1986 Porsche 944 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1986 Porsche 944, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 944 bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1986 Porsche 944 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 944 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 944 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Porsche 944 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1986 Porsche 944’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Porsche up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1986 Porsche 944’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Porsche 944 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Porsche 944’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1986 Porsche 944 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 944's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Porsche 944? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • When should I have my Porsche 944 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Porsche's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
