Is It Time For 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Custom Cruiser feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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.

Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser suspension 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.

1990 Custom Cruiser Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 does Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months.
