Is It Time For 1991 Volkswagen Jetta Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1991 Volkswagen Jetta, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Jetta jolts, drifts 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 1991 Volkswagen Jetta in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 Jetta steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volkswagen Jetta Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1991 Volkswagen Jetta’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Jetta’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Volkswagen Jetta shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1991 Volkswagen Jetta’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1991 Volkswagen Jetta Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volkswagen's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volkswagen Jetta? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • Does my Volkswagen Jetta power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Jetta is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Volkswagen's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
