Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Volkswagen Fox

Does Your 1989 Volkswagen Fox Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 Volkswagen Fox, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Fox jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1989 Volkswagen Fox, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel 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 your Volkswagen Fox’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 Fox Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Volkswagen Fox 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 Volkswagen Fox’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Fox shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Fox’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1989 Fox Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Fox's steering and 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. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Fox? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 does Volkswagen Fox power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Fox’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
