Not sure when or if your Oldsmobile 98’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1991 Oldsmobile 98 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1991 Oldsmobile 98, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. 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 trouble is the best time to bring your 1991 Oldsmobile 98 in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 parts of your Oldsmobile 98 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Oldsmobile 98 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 Oldsmobile 98’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1991 Oldsmobile 98’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile 98 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1991 Oldsmobile 98 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
