Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Volvo 244

Does Your 1987 Volvo 244 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1987 Volvo 244, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 244 jolts, sways 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 1987 Volvo 244 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 244 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 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

Your 1987 Volvo 244’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1987 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 back and forth could all be indicators of worn Volvo 244 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Volvo 244 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1987 244 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volvo's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Volvo 244 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 244 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 244’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
