2005 Pontiac Aztek Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2005 Pontiac Aztek Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2005 Pontiac Aztek, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Aztek feels bouncy, drifts 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 2005 Pontiac Aztek in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 Pontiac Aztek’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 Aztek Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Pontiac Aztek suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 2005 Pontiac Aztek’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Pontiac Aztek shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Pontiac Aztek’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.

Questions About 2005 Pontiac Aztek Steering & Suspension

  • 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 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Aztek? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
