1985 Quantum Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1985 Volkswagen Quantum Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1985 Volkswagen Quantum, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Quantum jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1985 Volkswagen Quantum in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Volkswagen Quantum’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volkswagen Quantum Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1985 Volkswagen Quantum’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1985 Volkswagen Quantum shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Quantum shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Volkswagen Quantum’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Quantum Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volkswagen's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Volkswagen Quantum get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volkswagen intended.
  • When should I have my Volkswagen Quantum power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
