1987 Calais Oldsmobile Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1987 Oldsmobile Calais Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1987 Oldsmobile Calais, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Calais jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Oldsmobile Calais, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Calais suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Oldsmobile Calais suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Calais Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1987 Oldsmobile Calais’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 Calais’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Calais shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Oldsmobile Calais 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.

1987 Calais Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Calais's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile Calais get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Calais 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’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
