When does Volvo recommend steering and suspension service for 1991 Volvo 240s?

Does Your 1991 Volvo 240 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1991 Volvo 240, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 240 feels bouncy, pulls 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 1991 Volvo 240, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 240 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Volvo 240 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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 Volvo 240

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 Volvo 240’s suspension. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1991 Volvo 240’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Volvo 240 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 240’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1991 240 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volvo's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Volvo 240 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volvo intended.
  • Does my Volvo 240 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 240’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Volvo service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
