1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Cutlass Salon feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Cutlass Salon suspension system needs repair, 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 your Cutlass Salon steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon’s suspension. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Oldsmobile up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cutlass Salon’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new 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 Salon 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon 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 Salon’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
