1988 Fox Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1988 Volkswagen Fox Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1988 Volkswagen Fox, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Fox feels bouncy, pulls 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 1988 Volkswagen Fox, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Fox suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Volkswagen Fox suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volkswagen Fox

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Volkswagen Fox suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Fox’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Fox shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Volkswagen Fox’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
