1989 Toronado Oldsmobile Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1989 Oldsmobile Toronado Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1989 Oldsmobile Toronado, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Toronado jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Oldsmobile Toronado in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Oldsmobile Toronado’s suspension. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1989 Oldsmobile Toronado shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Oldsmobile Toronado shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Oldsmobile Toronado’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 Toronado Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Toronado's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Oldsmobile Toronado 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 Toronado’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Oldsmobile service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
