Suspension Service & Repair for 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Does Your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Cutlass Ciera 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 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera in for steering and suspension services. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Cutlass Ciera suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cutlass Ciera’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
