Does Your 1986 Buick Skylark Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1986 Buick Skylark, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Skylark feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Buick Skylark in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Buick Skylark 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 Skylark Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1986 Buick Skylark’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 1986 Buick Skylark shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Buick Skylark shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Skylark’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1986 Skylark Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Skylark's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Buick Skylark? 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 connect with the road how Buick intended.
  • When does Buick Skylark power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
