1985 Oldsmobile Toronado Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Toronado jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 Toronado suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Toronado Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Oldsmobile Toronado shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Toronado’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1985 Oldsmobile Toronado Steering & Suspension

  • 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 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Oldsmobile Toronado? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Toronado power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Toronado is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Oldsmobile's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
