2012 Cayman Porsche Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2012 Porsche Cayman Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2012 Porsche Cayman, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cayman bounces, sways 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 2012 Porsche Cayman, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub 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 parts of your Porsche Cayman suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Porsche Cayman Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Porsche Cayman suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 2012 Porsche Cayman shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Porsche Cayman shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Porsche Cayman’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 Cayman Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cayman's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Porsche Cayman? 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 connect with the road how Porsche intended.
  • Does my Porsche Cayman power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Cayman is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Porsche's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
