Is It Time For 2009 Buick Lucerne Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2009 Buick Lucerne, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Lucerne jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2009 Buick Lucerne in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 Lucerne steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Buick Lucerne Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2009 Buick Lucerne’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Lucerne’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Buick Lucerne shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Buick Lucerne suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2009 Lucerne Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Buick's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 Lucerne? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Buick intended.
  • When does Buick Lucerne power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Lucerne is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
