Is It Time For 2008 Buick Lucerne Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2008 Buick Lucerne, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Lucerne feels bouncy, drifts 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 Lucerne in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Lucerne 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 Lucerne 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Buick Lucerne

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Buick Lucerne’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2008 Buick Lucerne shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Buick Lucerne shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Lucerne’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 Lucerne Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Lucerne's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Buick Lucerne? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Buick intended.
  • When should I have my Buick Lucerne power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Lucerne’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
