1984 Oldsmobile Firenza Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1984 Oldsmobile Firenza Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1984 Oldsmobile Firenza, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Firenza jolts, 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 1984 Oldsmobile Firenza in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Firenza suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Oldsmobile Firenza’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Firenza Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1984 Oldsmobile Firenza’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 1984 Oldsmobile Firenza shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Firenza shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1984 Oldsmobile Firenza’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
