As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco, bring it 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, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Scirocco steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volkswagen Scirocco Replacement Shocks & Struts
