Suspension Service & Repair for 1983 Oldsmobile Omega

Does Your 1983 Oldsmobile Omega Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1983 Oldsmobile Omega, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Omega bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1983 Oldsmobile Omega 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Omega steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Omega

Your 1983 Oldsmobile Omega’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Oldsmobile Omega’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Omega shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Oldsmobile Omega suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1983 Omega Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Oldsmobile Omega? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Oldsmobile intended.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Omega power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Omega’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
