When To Get 1996 Buick Regal Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1996 Buick Regal, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Regal bounces, sways 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 Regal in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Regal suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Regal 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 Regal Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1996 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. 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 Regal’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Buick Regal shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Buick Regal suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1996 Buick Regal Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Regal's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Buick Regal? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 Regal power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Regal is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Buick's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
