1983 Pontiac Bonneville Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1983 Pontiac Bonneville Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1983 Pontiac Bonneville, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Bonneville jolts, sways 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 1983 Pontiac Bonneville, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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 absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Pontiac Bonneville’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 Bonneville Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1983 Pontiac Bonneville’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Pontiac Bonneville’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Pontiac Bonneville shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Pontiac Bonneville’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

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 Bonneville power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months.
