1984 6000 Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1984 Pontiac 6000 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1984 Pontiac 6000, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your 6000 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1984 Pontiac 6000 in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. 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 your 6000 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac 6000 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1984 Pontiac 6000 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 6000’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Pontiac 6000 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1984 Pontiac 6000’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1984 Pontiac 6000 Steering & Suspension

  • 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. 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 Pontiac 6000 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your 6000’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
