1988 Porsche 944 Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1988 Porsche 944 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1988 Porsche 944, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 944 bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Porsche 944 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 944’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 944 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Porsche 944 suspension system. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Porsche 944 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Porsche 944 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Porsche 944 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 944 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 alert you to the need for new 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Porsche 944? 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 944 power steering fluid need to be 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.
