When To Get 1990 Buick Electra Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1990 Buick Electra, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Electra feels bouncy, 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 1990 Buick Electra in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub 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 your Buick Electra’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.

Buick Electra Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Buick Electra’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Electra’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Buick Electra shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Electra’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 Electra 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 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 Buick Electra 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 should I have my Buick Electra power steering fluid checked? 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 can fill it per Buick's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
