When To Get 1989 Buick Reatta Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1989 Buick Reatta, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Reatta bounces, pulls 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 1989 Buick Reatta, bring it 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. 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 Reatta 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Buick Reatta

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Buick Reatta’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Buick up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Reatta’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Buick Reatta shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Reatta’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1989 Buick Reatta Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Buick's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Why should my Buick Reatta get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 connect with the road how Buick intended.
  • When should I have my Buick Reatta power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Reatta is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
