1987 Volvo 760 Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1987 Volvo 760 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1987 Volvo 760, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 760 bounces, sways 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 1987 Volvo 760 in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 760 suspension system needs repair, 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volvo 760 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Volvo 760’s suspension. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1987 Volvo 760’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Volvo 760 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Volvo 760’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1987 Volvo 760 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volvo's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volvo 760? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Volvo 760 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 760’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
