Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
