1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser, 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 Cruiser jolts, sways 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 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Cutlass Cruiser suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Cutlass Cruiser steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 Cruiser

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward 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 routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1988 Cutlass Cruiser Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Oldsmobile's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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. 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 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months.
