When you first drove your 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Silhouette feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Your 2003 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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. 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, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth 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 regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
