Does Your 2020 Cadillac CT5 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2020 Cadillac CT5, 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 CT5 feels bouncy, sways 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 2020 Cadillac CT5 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 CT5 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 CT5 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2020 Cadillac CT5’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your Cadillac up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2020 Cadillac CT5 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Cadillac CT5 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2020 Cadillac CT5’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2020 CT5 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my CT5'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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Cadillac CT5? 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 the tires connect with the road how Cadillac intended.
  • When does Cadillac CT5 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 CT5 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Cadillac's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • What can cause my Cadillac CT5 to have a bouncy ride? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your CT5 to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my CT5 tilt forward when I hit the brakes? When you brake, the forward momentum combined with your vehicle's weight sends a lot of force to the vehicle's front end. A bad suspension can cause all that weight and force to push the front end downward.
  • What do worn Cadillac CT5 shocks feel like? Worn CT5 shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your CT5 might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your CT5 shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
