Is It Time For 1986 Cadillac Cimarron Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1986 Cadillac Cimarron, 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 Cimarron jolts, leans 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 1986 Cadillac Cimarron in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Cimarron 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 Cimarron 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.

Cadillac Cimarron Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Cadillac Cimarron suspension system. 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 1986 Cadillac Cimarron’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Cadillac Cimarron shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Cadillac Cimarron 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.

1986 Cimarron Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cimarron'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 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 Cadillac Cimarron get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Cadillac intended.
  • When does Cadillac Cimarron power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 can fill it per Cadillac's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • Why is my Cadillac Cimarron bouncing excessively? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my Cimarron's nose dive down when I hit the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your Cimarron 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 Cimarron are bad? Worn shock absorbers can’t absorb road bumps well, making your Cimarron feel like it’s leaning or swaying when you turn. You may also experience more shaking, rocking, or bouncing than usual as your Cimarron travels over minor bumps.
