When To Get 2003 Volvo S60 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2003 Volvo S60, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your S60 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2003 Volvo S60 in for steering and suspension services. 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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your S60 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 Volvo S60’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 S60 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2003 Volvo S60’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 S60’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Volvo S60 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2003 Volvo S60’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2003 Volvo S60 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my S60'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 S60 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. 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.
  • When does Volvo S60 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your S60’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
