Suspension Service & Repair for 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette

Does Your 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Silhouette feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Oldsmobile Silhouette suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, 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 2002 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Silhouette’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your 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. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Silhouette Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 Silhouette? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Oldsmobile intended.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Silhouette power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Silhouette is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Oldsmobile service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
