When To Get 2016 Cadillac ATS Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2016 Cadillac ATS, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your ATS 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 2016 Cadillac ATS in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your Cadillac ATS suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Cadillac ATS Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2016 Cadillac ATS’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. 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 2016 Cadillac ATS shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Cadillac ATS shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2016 Cadillac ATS suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 2016 Cadillac ATS Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Cadillac's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Cadillac ATS? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Cadillac intended.
  • Does my Cadillac ATS power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your ATS is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Cadillac's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • Why does my Cadillac ATS bounce so much? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your ATS to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my ATS tilt forward when I hit the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your ATS combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Cadillac ATS are bad? Worn ATS shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your ATS might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your ATS shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
