Is It Time For 1991 Geo Prizm Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1991 Geo Prizm, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Prizm jolts, leans 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 1991 Geo Prizm in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Geo Prizm suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Geo Prizm

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 Geo Prizm’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1991 Geo Prizm shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Geo Prizm shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1991 Geo Prizm’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.

1991 Prizm Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Prizm's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new 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 should my Geo Prizm get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Geo Prizm 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 Prizm’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Geo service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • What can cause my Geo Prizm to have a bouncy ride? If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your Prizm goes over a bump or dip, you may have a problem with your struts or shocks. Faulty shocks and struts can’t properly absorb road bumps, leading to a bouncy ride.
  • Why does my Prizm front end dip forward when I brake? As you brake, the forward momentum of your Prizm combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • What do worn Geo Prizm shocks feel like? Worn shock absorbers can’t absorb road bumps well, making your Prizm feel like it’s leaning or swaying when you turn. You may also experience more shaking, rocking, or bouncing than usual as your Prizm travels over minor bumps.
