When To Get 1985 Buick Somerset Regal Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1985 Buick Somerset Regal, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Somerset Regal bounces, pulls 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 1985 Buick Somerset Regal in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Somerset Regal steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Buick Somerset Regal Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Buick Somerset Regal suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 Somerset Regal’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Buick Somerset Regal shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1985 Buick Somerset Regal suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Somerset Regal Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Somerset Regal's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Buick Somerset Regal 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. 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 should I have my Buick Somerset Regal power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Somerset Regal’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Buick's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
