1997 Porsche Boxster Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1997 Porsche Boxster suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1997 Porsche Boxster Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1997 Porsche Boxster, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Boxster jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1997 Porsche Boxster, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Boxster suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Boxster 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 Boxster Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1997 Porsche Boxster suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 1997 Porsche Boxster shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Porsche Boxster shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Porsche Boxster’s 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.

Questions About 1997 Porsche Boxster Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Boxster's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Porsche Boxster? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Porsche intended.
  • When should I have my Porsche Boxster power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Boxster’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Porsche service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
