Does Your 1990 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Oldsmobile Delta 88, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Delta 88 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 Oldsmobile Delta 88 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Delta 88 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Oldsmobile Delta 88’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 Delta 88 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 Oldsmobile Delta 88 suspension system. 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 1990 Oldsmobile Delta 88’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Delta 88 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Oldsmobile Delta 88 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
