Does Your 1996 Buick LeSabre Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1996 Buick LeSabre, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your LeSabre jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1996 Buick LeSabre, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, 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 your LeSabre 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 LeSabre Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Buick LeSabre suspension system. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Buick LeSabre shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Buick LeSabre shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your LeSabre’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1996 LeSabre Steering & Suspension Q&A

Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Buick intended.
  • When does Buick LeSabre 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 LeSabre’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Buick's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
