- 1995 Buick Roadmaster Sedan
Hey guys! Im new to the forum. Im 22 years old and I bought a 95 light adriatic blue roadmaster a year ago. It was a barnfind that had 18,000 original miles on it (original owner drove it for 12k and passed away, nephew took it and kept it in garage for most of its life, then i bought it), now it has 27,000 miles. I have the base model but the original owner bought it new from the factory with options (limited slip diff, leather seats, key fob, bigger radiator, leather steering wheel). I guess my question is this, what are some common roadmaster suspension or mechanical issues you guys have found on your RMs? My problem is the car sat for lots of years and cars dont like to sit, so im wondering if I should service my fluids earlier than the book says to be safe, and do early preventative maintenance? So far since ive owned the car, I did inner and outer tie rods, center link, went to do idler arm but new one didnt fit right, 4 new shocks, ac compressor and accumulator and orifice tube (compressor clutch blew on old one and ran dry for a while, theres lots of metal in the system so I disconnected the electrical on the new one to not ruin it), oil cooler line, new pads and rotors in front. I plan on doing all ball joints closer to summer, but mine are in okay shape, im not too sure about the wheel bearings.
