Is It Time For 1985 Cadillac Eldorado Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1985 Cadillac Eldorado, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Eldorado feels bouncy, leans 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 1985 Cadillac Eldorado, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Eldorado 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 Eldorado Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1985 Cadillac Eldorado’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1985 Cadillac Eldorado shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Cadillac Eldorado shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Cadillac Eldorado’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Eldorado Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Eldorado's steering and 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. 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 Eldorado? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Cadillac intended.
  • Does my Cadillac Eldorado 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 Eldorado’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Cadillac's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why does my Cadillac Eldorado bounce so much? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Eldorado to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my Eldorado's nose dive down when I hit the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your Eldorado 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 Eldorado shocks feel like? If your Eldorado shock absorbers are worn out, they won’t be able to properly dampen road bumps. You might experience a bouncy or unstable ride, especially over bumps or rough roads. Your Eldorado might also feel like it sways or rolls as you turn.
