1989 244 Volvo Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1989 Volvo 244 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1989 Volvo 244, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 244 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1989 Volvo 244 in for steering and suspension services. 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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. 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 Volvo 244’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volvo 244 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1989 Volvo 244’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 244’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Volvo 244 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 244’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1989 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 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volvo 244? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 244 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Volvo's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
