When does Volvo recommend steering and suspension service for 1992 Volvo 740s?

When To Get 1992 Volvo 740 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1992 Volvo 740, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 740 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1992 Volvo 740 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 740 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 740 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1992 Volvo 740 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1992 Volvo 740 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Volvo 740 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1992 Volvo 740 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1992 740 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volvo's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 740 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 the tires connect with the road how Volvo intended.
  • When should I have my Volvo 740 power steering fluid 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 can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
