When To Get 1991 Geo Storm Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1991 Geo Storm, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Storm bounces, sways 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 Storm 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Storm suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Geo Storm’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Geo Storm Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 Geo Storm’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Storm’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Geo Storm shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1991 Geo Storm’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.

1991 Storm Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Storm's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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 Geo Storm? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Geo intended.
  • Does my Geo Storm power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Storm’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Geo's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • What can cause my Geo Storm to have a bouncy ride? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your Storm to bounce more than usual.
  • Why does my Storm front end dip forward when I brake? As you brake, the forward momentum of your Storm 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.
  • How can I tell if the shocks on my Geo Storm are bad? Worn Storm shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Storm might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Storm shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
