Is It Time For 1988 Cadillac Brougham Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1988 Cadillac Brougham, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Brougham feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 Cadillac Brougham, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Brougham suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Brougham steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Cadillac Brougham Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1988 Cadillac Brougham’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Brougham’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Cadillac Brougham shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Cadillac Brougham suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 Brougham Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Brougham's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Cadillac Brougham 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 Brougham 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 Brougham is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Cadillac's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • Why is my Cadillac Brougham bouncing excessively? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Brougham to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my Brougham front end dip forward when I brake? The forward dip in the front end of your Brougham 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.
  • How do I know if I have worn Cadillac Brougham shocks? Worn Brougham shock absorbers can cause your vehicle to feel like it's bouncing or hopping over bumps instead of absorbing the impacts smoothly. You may also experience more body roll when turning.
