Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Oldsmobile 98

When To Get 1989 Oldsmobile 98 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1989 Oldsmobile 98, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 98 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1989 Oldsmobile 98 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, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your 98 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 98 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.

Oldsmobile 98 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Oldsmobile 98’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 1989 Oldsmobile 98 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile 98 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Oldsmobile 98 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
