Is It Time For 2012 Buick Regal Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Buick Regal, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Regal jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2012 Buick Regal 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Regal suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Buick Regal’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Buick Regal Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2012 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 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 things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Buick Regal shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Buick Regal suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2012 Buick Regal Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Buick's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Buick Regal? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Buick intended.
  • Does my Buick Regal power steering fluid need to be checked? 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’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
