2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Cobalt feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Chevrolet Cobalt suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Chevrolet Cobalt Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chevrolet up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Cobalt shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chevrolet'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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet Cobalt? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet Cobalt power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Cobalt’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
