Is It Time For 1998 Buick Riviera Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1998 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. Perhaps your Riviera feels bouncy, sways 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 1998 Buick Riviera, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Riviera suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Buick Riviera suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Buick Riviera Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Buick Riviera’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Buick Riviera’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Buick Riviera shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Buick Riviera’s 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.

Questions About 1998 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 help you notice when you need 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? 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 connect with the road how Buick intended.
  • Does my Buick Riviera 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
