1985 Bonneville Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1985 Pontiac Bonneville Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1985 Pontiac Bonneville, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Bonneville jolts, leans 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 1985 Pontiac Bonneville in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Pontiac Bonneville suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac Bonneville Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1985 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Bonneville’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 Bonneville shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Pontiac Bonneville’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 Bonneville Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Bonneville's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Bonneville? 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 the tires connect with the road how Pontiac intended.
  • When does Pontiac Bonneville power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
