When To Get 1989 Cadillac Eldorado Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1989 Cadillac Eldorado, 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 Eldorado feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Cadillac Eldorado 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 your Cadillac Eldorado’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Cadillac Eldorado Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1989 Cadillac Eldorado’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1989 Cadillac Eldorado shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Cadillac Eldorado shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Eldorado’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.

1989 Eldorado Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Cadillac Eldorado? 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 Eldorado power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Eldorado’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Cadillac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • Why is my Cadillac Eldorado bouncing so much? Excessive bouncing in your Cadillac Eldorado 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.
  • Why does my Eldorado front end dip forward when I brake? 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.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Cadillac Eldorado are bad? Worn shock absorbers can’t absorb road bumps well, making your Eldorado feel like it’s leaning or swaying when you turn. You may also experience more shaking, rocking, or bouncing than usual as your Eldorado travels over minor bumps.
