1985 Oldsmobile Calais Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1985 Oldsmobile Calais Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1985 Oldsmobile Calais, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Calais bounces, drifts 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 1985 Oldsmobile Calais in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Oldsmobile Calais’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Calais Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Oldsmobile Calais suspension system. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Oldsmobile up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1985 Oldsmobile Calais shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Calais shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Oldsmobile Calais’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1985 Calais Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Calais's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile Calais 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 should I have my Oldsmobile Calais power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Oldsmobile service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
