Suspension Service & Repair for 1999 Volkswagen Golf

When To Get 1999 Volkswagen Golf Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1999 Volkswagen Golf, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Golf bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1999 Volkswagen Golf in for steering and suspension services. 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 absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Volkswagen Golf’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 Golf Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1999 Volkswagen Golf’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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1999 Volkswagen Golf’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Golf shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1999 Volkswagen Golf suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1999 Golf Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volkswagen's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Golf? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volkswagen intended.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Golf power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Golf is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
