Not sure when or if your Oldsmobile 88’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 1999 Oldsmobile 88 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1999 Oldsmobile 88, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 88 jolts, 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 1999 Oldsmobile 88, 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, axle 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 Oldsmobile 88’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile 88

Your 1999 Oldsmobile 88’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 getting your 1999 Oldsmobile 88’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile 88 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1999 Oldsmobile 88 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1999 Oldsmobile 88 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Oldsmobile's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile 88 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 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. If your 88’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
