When To Get 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Bravada feels bouncy, drifts 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 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada 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, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Bravada 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 Bravada 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 Bravada Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Oldsmobile up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Bravada shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1996 Oldsmobile Bravada Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Oldsmobile's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Oldsmobile Bravada? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Oldsmobile intended.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Bravada power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
