1983 Cutlass Supreme Oldsmobile Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Cutlass Supreme feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme in for suspension and steering service. 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, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub 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 all of your options and the potential cost. If your Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cutlass Supreme’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1983 Cutlass Supreme Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Oldsmobile intended.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Cutlass Supreme is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
