2003 Silhouette Oldsmobile Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette Suspension Service?

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.

Oldsmobile Silhouette Shock & Strut Replacement Services

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. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2003 Silhouette Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Silhouette's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important 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 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.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Silhouette power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. 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.
