Is It Time For 1993 Porsche 968 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1993 Porsche 968, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 968 jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1993 Porsche 968 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 968 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 968 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1993 Porsche 968’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 1993 Porsche 968’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Porsche 968 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 968’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Porsche intended.
