When should you have your 1994 Volvo 940 suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 1994 Volvo 940 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1994 Volvo 940, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 940 feels bouncy, sways 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 1994 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 940 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 940 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volvo 940 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1994 Volvo 940 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 940’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Volvo 940 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1994 Volvo 940 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1994 940 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Volvo's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volvo 940? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Volvo 940 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Volvo service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
