Is It Time For 1984 Buick Skylark Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1984 Buick Skylark, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Skylark feels bouncy, 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 1984 Buick Skylark in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Buick Skylark’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Buick Skylark Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1984 Buick Skylark’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 Skylark’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Buick Skylark shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 Buick Skylark 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.

1984 Skylark Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Skylark's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 should my Buick Skylark 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 connect with the road how Buick intended.
  • When should I have my Buick Skylark power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Skylark’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
