When you first bought your 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Silhouette feels bouncy, sways 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 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, 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 your Oldsmobile Silhouette’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Silhouette

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Silhouette shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
