Is It Time For 1998 Porsche Boxster Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1998 Porsche Boxster, 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 Boxster jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1998 Porsche Boxster, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, 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 Boxster 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 parts of your Porsche Boxster suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Porsche Boxster Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1998 Porsche Boxster’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Porsche Boxster shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Porsche Boxster shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Porsche Boxster’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1998 Boxster 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Porsche Boxster get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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.
  • 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Porsche service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
