2002 Aurora Oldsmobile Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Aurora jolts, drifts 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 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Aurora 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 Aurora steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Aurora Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora’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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Oldsmobile up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Aurora’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Aurora shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Aurora’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Aurora Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile Aurora get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Oldsmobile intended.
  • When does Oldsmobile Aurora 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 Aurora’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Oldsmobile service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
