Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

When To Get 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cutlass Supreme bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Cutlass Supreme steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 Supreme shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1986 Cutlass Supreme Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Cutlass Supreme's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Cutlass Supreme is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
