Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Volvo 244

Does Your 1986 Volvo 244 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1986 Volvo 244, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 244 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1986 Volvo 244 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 parts of your Volvo 244 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volvo 244 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Volvo 244 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volvo up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Volvo 244 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Volvo 244 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Volvo 244’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1986 Volvo 244 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volvo's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volvo 244? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Volvo 244 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Volvo service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
