1985 Scirocco Volkswagen Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Scirocco bounces, pulls 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 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Scirocco suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Volkswagen Scirocco’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 Scirocco Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco suspension system. 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 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco shock and strut replacement 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 Scirocco shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Volkswagen Scirocco’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 Scirocco Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Volkswagen Scirocco get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 Scirocco power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Scirocco is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Volkswagen's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
