1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Cutlass Cruiser bounces, pulls 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 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser in for steering and suspension services. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 parts of your Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser 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.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser’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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cutlass Cruiser’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1983 Cutlass Cruiser Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • When does Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Cutlass Cruiser is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
