Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1999 Volvo C70

When should you have your 1999 Volvo C70 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1999 Volvo C70 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1999 Volvo C70, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C70 bounces, sways 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 1999 Volvo C70 in for steering and suspension services. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Volvo C70’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Volvo C70 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1999 Volvo C70 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 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 from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Volvo C70 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C70’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1999 C70 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 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 C70? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Volvo C70 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Volvo's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
