When To Get 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Cutlass Calais jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais suspension system. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Oldsmobile up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1990 Cutlass Calais Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Oldsmobile service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
