1988 Toronado Oldsmobile Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Toronado jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection 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 hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Toronado shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 Toronado 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 Toronado? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Oldsmobile intended.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Toronado power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months.
