When you first drove your 1998 Volkswagen Beetle, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Beetle feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Volkswagen Beetle in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Beetle suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Volkswagen Beetle’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Volkswagen Beetle’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Volkswagen Beetle shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Beetle shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Volkswagen Beetle’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
