Is It Time For 1987 Buick Riviera Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1987 Buick Riviera, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Riviera feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Buick Riviera, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your Riviera 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 Riviera Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1987 Buick Riviera’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. 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 1987 Buick Riviera shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Buick Riviera shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Buick Riviera suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
