1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Delta 88 feels bouncy, pulls 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 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 parts of your Oldsmobile Delta 88 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Delta 88

Your 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88’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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Delta 88 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Steering & Suspension

  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Oldsmobile Delta 88? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Oldsmobile intended.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Delta 88 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 Delta 88 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
