2004 Silhouette Oldsmobile Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2004 Oldsmobile Silhouette Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2004 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 noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2004 Oldsmobile Silhouette, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 2004 Oldsmobile Silhouette suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2004 Oldsmobile Silhouette’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Silhouette shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2004 Oldsmobile Silhouette’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2004 Silhouette Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Silhouette power steering fluid need to be 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 can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
