1999 Buick Riviera Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1999 Buick Riviera suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1999 Buick Riviera Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1999 Buick Riviera, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Riviera jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1999 Buick Riviera in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1999 Buick Riviera’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 1999 Buick Riviera shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Buick Riviera shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 Buick Riviera’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1999 Buick Riviera Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Riviera's steering and 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. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • 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 can fill it per Buick's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
