Does Your 2000 Cadillac DeVille Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2000 Cadillac DeVille, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your DeVille bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2000 Cadillac DeVille in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your DeVille suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Cadillac DeVille suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Cadillac DeVille Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2000 Cadillac DeVille’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2000 Cadillac DeVille’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Cadillac DeVille shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2000 Cadillac DeVille 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.

2000 DeVille Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 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 DeVille 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Cadillac DeVille power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your DeVille’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Cadillac service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • What can cause my Cadillac DeVille to have a bouncy ride? If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your DeVille goes over a bump or dip, you may have a problem with your struts or shocks. Faulty shocks and struts can’t properly absorb road bumps, leading to a bouncy ride.
  • What can cause the front end of my DeVille to dip forward when I apply the brakes? The forward momentum and weight transfer to the front wheels during braking can cause your DeVille's front end to dip forward. A damaged or faulty suspension system may fail to distribute the weight and force effectively, causing the front end to dip even more.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Cadillac DeVille are bad? Worn DeVille shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your DeVille might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your DeVille shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
