1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet, 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 Cabriolet bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Cabriolet 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 your Cabriolet steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Cabriolet Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet suspension system. 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 Volkswagen up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Cabriolet shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cabriolet’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.

1985 Cabriolet Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volkswagen'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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volkswagen Cabriolet? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Cabriolet power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Cabriolet is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
