1987 Quantum Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1987 Volkswagen Quantum Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1987 Volkswagen Quantum, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Quantum feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1987 Volkswagen Quantum 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, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Volkswagen Quantum’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Quantum Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1987 Volkswagen Quantum’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Quantum’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Quantum shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 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.

Questions About 1987 Volkswagen Quantum Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Quantum's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 Quantum? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Volkswagen intended.
  • Does my Volkswagen Quantum 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 Quantum’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
