1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette Suspension Service & Repair

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette

When should you have your 1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Silhouette feels bouncy, 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 1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 Silhouette 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.

Oldsmobile Silhouette Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette’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 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 Silhouette’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Silhouette shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Silhouette’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
