The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle.

We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Cutlass Calais steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Oldsmobile's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Oldsmobile intended.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Cutlass Calais is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
