When To Get 2004 Porsche Boxster Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2004 Porsche Boxster, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Boxster bounces, drifts 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 2004 Porsche Boxster in for steering and suspension services. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Porsche Boxster Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 Porsche Boxster’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Porsche up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Boxster’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, 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 2004 Porsche Boxster’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
