When To Get 1995 Volvo 960 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1995 Volvo 960, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 960 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1995 Volvo 960, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 960 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Volvo 960 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volvo 960 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1995 Volvo 960’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 960’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Volvo 960 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1995 Volvo 960 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.

1995 960 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Volvo 960 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volvo intended.
  • When does Volvo 960 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 960 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Volvo's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
