Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1991 Volvo 780

Is the steering and suspension system in your Volvo 780 due for service yet?

Does Your 1991 Volvo 780 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1991 Volvo 780, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 780 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1991 Volvo 780 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 your 780 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volvo 780

Your 1991 Volvo 780’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Volvo up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1991 Volvo 780 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Volvo 780 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 780’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

  • When should I have my Volvo 780 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 780’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Volvo's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
