1988 6000 Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1988 Pontiac 6000 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1988 Pontiac 6000, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 6000 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 Pontiac 6000, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, 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 6000 suspension system needs repair, 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 Pontiac 6000’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.

Pontiac 6000 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1988 Pontiac 6000’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Pontiac 6000 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Pontiac 6000 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 6000’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.

1988 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. 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 Pontiac 6000 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how 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 can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
