When you first bought your 1985 Volkswagen Jetta, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Jetta jolts, drifts 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 1985 Volkswagen Jetta, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Volkswagen Jetta’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Volkswagen Jetta suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1985 Volkswagen Jetta’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 back and forth could all be indicators of worn 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.
