Is It Time For 1997 Oldsmobile Bravada Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1997 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, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1997 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Oldsmobile Bravada’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Oldsmobile Bravada Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1997 Oldsmobile Bravada’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1997 Oldsmobile Bravada’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Bravada shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Bravada’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1997 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 help you notice when you need 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 Bravada 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Oldsmobile intended.
  • When does Oldsmobile Bravada 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 Bravada is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
