Does Your 1990 Buick Skylark Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1990 Buick Skylark, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Skylark jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 Buick Skylark in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Skylark suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Skylark steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Buick Skylark Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Buick Skylark’s suspension. 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 getting your 1990 Buick Skylark’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Buick Skylark shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Buick Skylark suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1990 Buick Skylark Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Buick's 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. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Buick Skylark power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Skylark’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Buick service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
