1996 Buick Roadmaster Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1996 Buick Roadmaster suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1996 Buick Roadmaster Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1996 Buick Roadmaster, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Roadmaster jolts, drifts 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 1996 Buick Roadmaster 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 dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Buick Roadmaster suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Buick Roadmaster Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Buick Roadmaster’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 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 Roadmaster’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Buick Roadmaster shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Roadmaster’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.

1996 Roadmaster Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Roadmaster's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Buick Roadmaster? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Buick intended.
  • Does my Buick Roadmaster power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Roadmaster is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
