When To Get 2002 Buick Century Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2002 Buick Century, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Century bounces, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2002 Buick Century in for steering and suspension services. 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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Buick Century suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Buick Century Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2002 Buick Century’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 Buick up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2002 Buick Century shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Buick Century shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Buick Century suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2002 Century Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Century's steering and 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 should my Buick Century 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 the tires connect with the road how Buick intended.
  • Does my Buick Century power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Century is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
