Is the steering and suspension system in your Volvo S60 due for service yet?

When To Get 2011 Volvo S60 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2011 Volvo S60, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your S60 jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2011 Volvo S60 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Volvo S60 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 Volvo S60 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2011 Volvo S60’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Volvo S60 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2011 Volvo S60 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2011 S60 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my S60's steering and 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Volvo S60? 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 the tires connect with the road how Volvo intended.
  • When does Volvo S60 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Volvo service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
