Is It Time For 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cutlass Ciera jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 Cutlass Ciera steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Cutlass Ciera’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your 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. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1986 Cutlass Ciera Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cutlass Ciera's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Ciera power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Cutlass Ciera’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
