When To Get 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Custom Cruiser bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Custom Cruiser suspension system needs repair, 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 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 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s suspension. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Custom Cruiser’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Custom Cruiser's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser? 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 the tires connect with the road how Oldsmobile intended.
  • When does Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Custom Cruiser’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser bouncing excessively? Excessive bouncing in your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • What can cause the front end of my Custom Cruiser to dip forward when I apply the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your Custom Cruiser combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser are bad? Worn Custom Cruiser shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Custom Cruiser might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Custom Cruiser shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
