1998 Volvo C70 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1998 Volvo C70 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1998 Volvo C70 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1998 Volvo C70, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C70 bounces, pulls 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 1998 Volvo C70 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your C70 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 C70 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Volvo C70

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Volvo C70 suspension system. 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 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 C70’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Volvo C70 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Volvo C70’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1998 C70 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volvo's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volvo C70? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Volvo intended.
  • When should I have my Volvo C70 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your C70’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
