Suspension Service & Repair for 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible

Is It Time For 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Rabbit Convertible jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible, bring it 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 Rabbit Convertible’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.

Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible’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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volkswagen up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Volkswagen Rabbit Convertible shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Rabbit Convertible’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.
