Suspension Service & Repair for 1988 Oldsmobile Firenza

When To Get 1988 Oldsmobile Firenza Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1988 Oldsmobile Firenza, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Firenza jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 Oldsmobile Firenza, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1988 Oldsmobile Firenza’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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Firenza’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Firenza shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Firenza’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
