When To Get 2001 Buick Century Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2001 Buick Century, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Century jolts, 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 2001 Buick Century in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Buick Century suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Buick Century Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2001 Buick Century suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2001 Buick Century shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Buick Century shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2001 Buick Century’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.

2001 Century Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Buick's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Buick Century? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 Buick intended.
  • Does my Buick Century 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 Century’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
