When To Get 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cutlass Calais jolts, pulls 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 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Cutlass Calais suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais’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 Cutlass Calais Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Oldsmobile up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Cutlass Calais’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cutlass Calais's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 Cutlass Calais 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 connect with the road how 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 can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
