Does Your 1987 Cadillac Allante Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1987 Cadillac Allante, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Allante jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1987 Cadillac Allante in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Allante suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Cadillac Allante’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Cadillac Allante Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Cadillac Allante’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 Cadillac up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1987 Cadillac Allante’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Cadillac Allante shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Cadillac Allante suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 1987 Cadillac Allante Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Cadillac'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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Cadillac Allante 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.
  • Does my Cadillac Allante power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Cadillac's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why does my Cadillac Allante bounce so much? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • What can cause the front end of my Allante to dip forward when I apply the brakes? The forward dip in the front end of your Allante when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my Cadillac Allante need replacing? Worn shock absorbers can’t absorb road bumps well, making your Allante feel like it’s leaning or swaying when you turn. You may also experience more shaking, rocking, or bouncing than usual as your Allante travels over minor bumps.
