Does Your 1996 Oldsmobile LSS Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1996 Oldsmobile LSS, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your LSS 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 1996 Oldsmobile LSS in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your LSS 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 LSS

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Oldsmobile LSS’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Oldsmobile LSS shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile LSS shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Oldsmobile LSS 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.

Questions About 1996 Oldsmobile LSS Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my LSS's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile LSS get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile LSS power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your LSS’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
