1987 Pontiac 6000 Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1987 Pontiac 6000 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1987 Pontiac 6000, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. 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 1987 Pontiac 6000 in for steering and suspension services. 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, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 6000 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Pontiac 6000’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac 6000 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Pontiac 6000 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 6000’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Pontiac 6000 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 6000’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 6000 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac 6000? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Pontiac intended.
  • When should I have my Pontiac 6000 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 6000 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
