Suspension Service & Repair for 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier

When should you have your 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Cavalier feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Cavalier suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Chevrolet Cavalier’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.

Chevrolet Cavalier Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier suspension system. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chevrolet up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Cavalier shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1991 Cavalier Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet'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. 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 Chevrolet Cavalier get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • Does my Chevrolet Cavalier power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
