When does Oldsmobile recommend steering and suspension service for 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouettes?

When To Get 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1999 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. Maybe your Silhouette jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette in for suspension and steering service. 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 absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Silhouette suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Oldsmobile Silhouette suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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 Silhouette

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Silhouette shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1999 Silhouette Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Oldsmobile Silhouette? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Silhouette 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 Silhouette is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Oldsmobile service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
