When you first drove your 1984 Oldsmobile 98, 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 98 bounces, pulls 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 1984 Oldsmobile 98 in for suspension and steering service. 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, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Oldsmobile 98’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.
Your 1984 Oldsmobile 98’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 98’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile 98 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 Oldsmobile 98 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
