1987 Cutlass Cruiser Oldsmobile Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Cutlass Cruiser feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser, 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
