2012 Porsche Boxster Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2012 Porsche Boxster Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Porsche Boxster, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Boxster bounces, leans 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 2012 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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2012 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Porsche up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2012 Porsche Boxster’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Porsche Boxster shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 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.

2012 Boxster Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Boxster's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Boxster is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Porsche's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
