1998 Oldsmobile Bravada Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Bravada bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Bravada suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Oldsmobile Bravada suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Bravada

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Bravada shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Oldsmobile's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Oldsmobile Bravada? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 should I have my Oldsmobile Bravada power steering fluid checked? 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 follow Oldsmobile service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
