When To Get 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cutlass Salon bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon in for suspension and steering service. 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Cutlass Salon suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cutlass Salon’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
