1989 Cutlass Ciera Oldsmobile Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1989 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 jolts, leans 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 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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

Your 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 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. Bouncing, side-to-side 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 regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cutlass Ciera's steering and 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
