Is It Time For 2006 Buick Rainier Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2006 Buick Rainier, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Rainier jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2006 Buick Rainier 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Rainier 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 Rainier Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2006 Buick Rainier’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2006 Buick Rainier shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Buick Rainier shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2006 Buick Rainier’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2006 Rainier Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Buick's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Buick Rainier? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Rainier power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Rainier’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
