1987 Firenza Oldsmobile Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza, 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 Firenza feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, 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 Firenza steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Firenza

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Firenza’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Firenza shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
