Is It Time For 2002 Buick Regal Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2002 Buick Regal, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Regal bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2002 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Regal steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Buick Regal Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2002 Buick Regal’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 Regal’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Buick Regal shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2002 Buick Regal’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2002 Regal Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Buick Regal? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your 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’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
