When To Get 1990 Buick Riviera Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1990 Buick Riviera, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Riviera bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 Buick Riviera, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 Buick Riviera’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 Riviera Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1990 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Riviera’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Buick Riviera shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Riviera’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1990 Buick Riviera Steering & Suspension

  • 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Buick Riviera 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. 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 Riviera 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 Riviera is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
