Does Your 1989 Buick Riviera Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 Buick Riviera, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Riviera bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Buick Riviera in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Riviera suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Buick Riviera suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Buick Riviera

Your 1989 Buick Riviera’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1989 Buick Riviera shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Buick Riviera shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Buick Riviera suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1989 Riviera Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Buick's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Buick Riviera? 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 should I have my Buick Riviera power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Riviera is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
