When To Get 1987 Buick Skyhawk Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1987 Buick Skyhawk, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Skyhawk jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1987 Buick Skyhawk in for suspension and steering service. 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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Skyhawk suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Buick Skyhawk 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.

Buick Skyhawk Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Buick Skyhawk’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your Buick up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Skyhawk’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Buick Skyhawk shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Buick Skyhawk suspension 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 1987 Buick Skyhawk Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Buick's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Buick Skyhawk? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 Skyhawk 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
