Not sure when or if your Volvo C30’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 2008 Volvo C30 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2008 Volvo C30, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C30 bounces, drifts 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 2008 Volvo C30 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Volvo C30 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 C30 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Volvo C30’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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2008 Volvo C30’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Volvo C30 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C30’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 C30 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volvo's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Volvo C30 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Volvo C30 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your C30 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
