When To Get 1997 Buick Regal Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1997 Buick Regal, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Regal jolts, 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 1997 Buick Regal 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Regal 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 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1997 Buick Regal suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1997 Buick Regal shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Buick Regal shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Buick Regal suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1997 Buick Regal Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Buick's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • Why should my Buick Regal get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 does Buick Regal power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Regal is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Buick's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
