Is It Time For 2005 Volkswagen Golf Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2005 Volkswagen Golf, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Golf feels bouncy, leans 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 2005 Volkswagen Golf 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, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Golf suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Volkswagen Golf 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.

Volkswagen Golf Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Volkswagen Golf’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Golf shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Golf’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
