When you first bought your 1984 Volkswagen Jetta, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Jetta jolts, pulls 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 1984 Volkswagen Jetta in for suspension and steering service. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Jetta suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Volkswagen Jetta suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Jetta Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1984 Volkswagen Jetta’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1984 Volkswagen Jetta’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Jetta shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Jetta’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
