When should you have your 1990 Volvo 740 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1990 Volvo 740 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1990 Volvo 740, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 740 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1990 Volvo 740 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 740 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volvo 740 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Volvo 740’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 1990 Volvo 740’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Volvo 740 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 740’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1990 Volvo 740 Steering & Suspension

  • 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volvo 740? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Volvo intended.
  • Does my Volvo 740 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 740’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Volvo's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
