Is It Time For 1998 Oldsmobile 88 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1998 Oldsmobile 88, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 88 jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Oldsmobile 88 in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your 88 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 88 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile 88

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Oldsmobile 88 suspension system. 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 1998 Oldsmobile 88 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile 88 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Oldsmobile 88 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.

1998 88 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Oldsmobile 88? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Oldsmobile 88 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.
