When To Get 1991 Buick Riviera Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1991 Buick Riviera, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Riviera 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 1991 Buick Riviera 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 Buick Riviera’s suspension. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1991 Buick Riviera’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Buick Riviera shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Riviera’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1991 Riviera Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Buick's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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. 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 Riviera power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Riviera’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
