When To Get 2009 Cadillac DTS Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2009 Cadillac DTS, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your DTS feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2009 Cadillac DTS, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your DTS suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Cadillac DTS 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 DTS Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 Cadillac DTS’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2009 Cadillac DTS shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Cadillac DTS shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Cadillac DTS suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2009 DTS Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Cadillac's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Cadillac DTS 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. 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.
  • Does my Cadillac DTS power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Cadillac's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why is my Cadillac DTS bouncing excessively? If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your DTS 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.
  • Why does my DTS 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 DTS shocks feel like? Worn DTS shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your DTS might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your DTS shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
