1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, 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 Custom Cruiser bounces, drifts 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 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle 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 explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

Your 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1983 Custom Cruiser Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Custom Cruiser's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Oldsmobile intended.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
