2003 Aztek Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2003 Pontiac Aztek Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2003 Pontiac Aztek, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Aztek feels bouncy, leans 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 2003 Pontiac Aztek in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Aztek 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 Aztek 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac Aztek

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2003 Pontiac Aztek’s suspension. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2003 Pontiac Aztek’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Pontiac Aztek shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Pontiac Aztek suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2003 Aztek Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Aztek'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 Pontiac Aztek? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Pontiac Aztek 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 Aztek is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
