Is It Time For 2004 Buick Century Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2004 Buick Century, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Century feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2004 Buick Century, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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

Buick Century Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2004 Buick Century’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Century’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Buick Century shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Century’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 Century Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Buick's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Buick Century power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 can fill it per Buick's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
