When To Get 2008 Buick LaCrosse Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2008 Buick LaCrosse, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your LaCrosse bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2008 Buick LaCrosse in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your LaCrosse steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Buick LaCrosse Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2008 Buick LaCrosse’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. 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 getting your 2008 Buick LaCrosse’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Buick LaCrosse shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your LaCrosse’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 2008 Buick LaCrosse Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my LaCrosse's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires 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 LaCrosse? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Buick LaCrosse power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your LaCrosse is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why is my Buick LaCrosse bouncing so much? Excessive bouncing in your Buick LaCrosse might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • Why does my LaCrosse's nose dive down when I hit the brakes? The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your LaCrosse's front end to dip forward. A damaged or faulty suspension system may fail to distribute the weight and force effectively, causing the front end to dip even more.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Buick LaCrosse are bad? Worn LaCrosse shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your LaCrosse might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your LaCrosse shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
