Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Porsche 944

When To Get 1989 Porsche 944 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1989 Porsche 944, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 944 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Porsche 944 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 944 suspension system needs repair, 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 944 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Porsche 944’s suspension. 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 getting your 1989 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 an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Porsche 944 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Porsche 944’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1989 Porsche 944 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Porsche's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Porsche 944 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 follow Porsche service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
