Is It Time For 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Cutlass Calais bounces, leans 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 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub 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 parts of your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1989 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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cutlass Calais’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1989 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais? 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 should I have my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why is my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais bouncing so much? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Cutlass Calais to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my Cutlass Calais's nose dive down when I hit the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your Cutlass Calais 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 do I know if I have worn Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais shocks? Worn Cutlass Calais shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Cutlass Calais might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Cutlass Calais shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
