Is It Time For 2005 Cadillac CTS Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2005 Cadillac CTS, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your CTS feels bouncy, sways 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 2005 Cadillac CTS, bring it 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your CTS suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your CTS steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Cadillac CTS Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Cadillac CTS suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2005 Cadillac CTS shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Cadillac CTS shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Cadillac CTS’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2005 CTS Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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 CTS? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Cadillac intended.
  • When should I have my Cadillac CTS power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your CTS’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Cadillac's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why does my Cadillac CTS bounce so much? 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 CTS front end dip forward when I brake? As you brake, the forward momentum of your CTS 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.
  • What do worn Cadillac CTS shocks feel like? Worn shock absorbers can’t absorb road bumps well, making your CTS feel like it’s leaning or swaying when you turn. You may also experience more shaking, rocking, or bouncing than usual as your CTS travels over minor bumps.
