Not sure when or if your Volvo 760’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 1990 Volvo 760 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1990 Volvo 760, 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 760 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 Volvo 760, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your Volvo 760’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volvo 760

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 Volvo 760 suspension system. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1990 Volvo 760’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Volvo 760 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Volvo 760 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1990 Volvo 760 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 760's steering and 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. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Volvo 760 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volvo intended.
  • When does Volvo 760 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 760’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
