Is It Time For 2023 Cadillac CT5 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2023 Cadillac CT5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your CT5 jolts, drifts 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 2023 Cadillac CT5 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Cadillac CT5 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Cadillac CT5 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2023 Cadillac CT5 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 CT5’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Cadillac CT5 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your CT5’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2023 Cadillac CT5 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Cadillac CT5? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • 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’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Cadillac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • What can cause my Cadillac CT5 to have a bouncy ride? Excessive bouncing in your Cadillac CT5 might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • What can cause the front end of my CT5 to dip forward when I apply 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.
