1989 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1989 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1989 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Custom Cruiser bounces, leans 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 1989 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Custom Cruiser steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 Custom Cruiser

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Custom Cruiser’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’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.

1989 Custom Cruiser Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Custom Cruiser's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 Custom Cruiser 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.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Custom Cruiser is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
