Not sure when or if your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera, 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 Ciera jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1996 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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward 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 regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1996 Cutlass Ciera Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 should my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Cutlass Ciera is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
