Does Your 1985 Oldsmobile 98 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1985 Oldsmobile 98, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 98 feels bouncy, 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 1985 Oldsmobile 98 in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 98 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Oldsmobile 98 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
