Does Your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Cutlass Supreme feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1987 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. 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 getting your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs 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. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1987 Cutlass Supreme Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Oldsmobile's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Oldsmobile service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
