Does Your 1996 Buick Park Avenue Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1996 Buick Park Avenue, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Park Avenue feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1996 Buick Park Avenue in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Park Avenue suspension system needs repair, 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 Park Avenue steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Buick Park Avenue Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Buick Park Avenue’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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Buick Park Avenue shock and strut replacement 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 Park Avenue shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Buick Park Avenue suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1996 Buick Park Avenue Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Park Avenue'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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Buick Park Avenue? 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.
  • Does my Buick Park Avenue power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
