Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Oldsmobile Toronado

Is It Time For 1986 Oldsmobile Toronado Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1986 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. Perhaps your Toronado feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Oldsmobile Toronado in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Toronado suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Toronado steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Oldsmobile Toronado Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Oldsmobile Toronado’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Oldsmobile up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Toronado’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Toronado shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Toronado’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1986 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. 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 Toronado? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Oldsmobile intended.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Toronado power steering fluid need to be checked? 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 your suspension perform smoothly.
