I have the same car.. does it have flat spots from sitting? Do the tires balanced?

What year Eldo? Is it a 1974 as indicated? If its a newer (as in less than 20 years old) Eldo, then your tires may need road-force balanced, instead of standard balancing.

My El Dorado drives like it is on a cloud. Everything is still original on the car, except the muffler finally rusted off and I had to get a new one. Sounds like it just needs a good alignment.
