Suspension Service & Repair for 1983 Pontiac 6000

Is It Time For 1983 Pontiac 6000 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1983 Pontiac 6000, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your 6000 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1983 Pontiac 6000 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 your 6000 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac 6000 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1983 Pontiac 6000’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 getting your 1983 Pontiac 6000’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Pontiac 6000 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1983 Pontiac 6000 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1983 6000 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Pontiac's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac 6000? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 Pontiac intended.
  • Does my Pontiac 6000 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 6000 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
