Suspension Service & Repair for 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado

Is It Time For 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Toronado bounces, sways 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 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado, 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Oldsmobile Toronado’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Toronado Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Toronado shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 Oldsmobile Toronado suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1984 Toronado Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Oldsmobile's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 Toronado? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Oldsmobile intended.
  • When does Oldsmobile Toronado power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Toronado’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
