Is It Time For 1997 Oldsmobile Regency Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1997 Oldsmobile Regency, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Regency jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1997 Oldsmobile Regency 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 Oldsmobile Regency’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Regency Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1997 Oldsmobile Regency’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 limit vibration and keep your Oldsmobile up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1997 Oldsmobile Regency’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Regency shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Regency’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 Regency Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Oldsmobile's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile Regency get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Regency power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Regency’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Oldsmobile service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
