1987 Cabriolet Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Cabriolet feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 Volkswagen Cabriolet’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.

Volkswagen Cabriolet Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Cabriolet shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet suspension 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.

1987 Cabriolet Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cabriolet's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volkswagen Cabriolet? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires 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 can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
