When To Get 1986 Buick LeSabre Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1986 Buick LeSabre, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your LeSabre bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1986 Buick LeSabre, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, 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 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 parts of your Buick LeSabre suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Buick LeSabre

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Buick LeSabre’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your LeSabre’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Buick LeSabre shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your LeSabre’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.

1986 LeSabre Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Buick LeSabre? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Buick intended.
  • Does my Buick LeSabre 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 LeSabre’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Buick's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
