Does Your 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cutlass Ciera bounces, drifts 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 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Cutlass Ciera steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 Ciera’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’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 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera power steering fluid 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’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
