1998 Chevrolet Cavalier Suspension Service & Repair

1998 Chevrolet Cavalier Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cavalier bounces, pulls 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 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Cavalier 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 your Cavalier steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Chevrolet Cavalier Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Cavalier shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1998 Cavalier Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 Chevrolet Cavalier? 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.
  • When does Chevrolet Cavalier power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Cavalier is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
