Is It Time For 1993 Volvo 940 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1993 Volvo 940, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 940 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 1993 Volvo 940 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Volvo 940’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.

Volvo 940 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1993 Volvo 940’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 1993 Volvo 940 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Volvo 940 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1993 Volvo 940’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1993 940 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 940's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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.
  • Why should my Volvo 940 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Volvo intended.
  • When should I have my Volvo 940 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
