Does Your 1985 Buick Regal Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Buick Regal, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Regal feels bouncy, 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 1985 Buick Regal in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Regal suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Buick Regal suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Buick Regal Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1985 Buick Regal’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Regal’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Buick Regal shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1985 Buick Regal suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1985 Buick Regal Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Regal's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Buick Regal? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 Regal power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
