When does Oldsmobile recommend steering and suspension service for 2001 Oldsmobile Bravadas?

Does Your 2001 Oldsmobile Bravada Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2001 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. Maybe your Bravada bounces, leans 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 2001 Oldsmobile Bravada in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2001 Oldsmobile Bravada’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Bravada’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Bravada shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2001 Oldsmobile Bravada’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2001 Bravada Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Bravada's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new 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? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Bravada power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Bravada is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Oldsmobile service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
