When To Get 2009 Volvo S40 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2009 Volvo S40, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your S40 bounces, leans 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 2009 Volvo S40 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your S40 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 S40 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 S40

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 Volvo S40’s suspension. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2009 Volvo S40’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Volvo S40 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2009 Volvo S40’s 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.
