When To Get 1988 Buick Skylark Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1988 Buick Skylark, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Skylark feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1988 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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Buick Skylark’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Buick up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1988 Buick Skylark’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Buick Skylark shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Skylark’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 Skylark Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Buick's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need 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 should my Buick Skylark get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
