1984 760 Volvo Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1984 Volvo 760 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1984 Volvo 760, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 760 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1984 Volvo 760 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 760 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volvo 760 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1984 Volvo 760’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 760’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Volvo 760 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1984 Volvo 760’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1984 Volvo 760 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.
  • Why should my Volvo 760 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volvo intended.
  • When should I have my Volvo 760 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 760 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
