When To Get 1992 Volvo 960 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1992 Volvo 960, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your 960 jolts, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1992 Volvo 960 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 960 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.

Volvo 960 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1992 Volvo 960 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1992 Volvo 960 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Volvo 960 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1992 Volvo 960’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1992 960 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 960'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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volvo 960? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 960 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 960 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Volvo's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
