When To Get 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Vanagon bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Vanagon steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volkswagen Vanagon

Your 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon’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. 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 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Volkswagen Vanagon shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Vanagon’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1991 Vanagon Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volkswagen's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 Vanagon? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • Does my Volkswagen Vanagon power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Vanagon’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Volkswagen service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
