1986 Pontiac Bonneville Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1986 Pontiac Bonneville Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1986 Pontiac Bonneville, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Bonneville feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Pontiac Bonneville in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Bonneville steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 1986 Pontiac Bonneville’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Pontiac Bonneville shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Pontiac Bonneville shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Pontiac Bonneville suspension 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.

1986 Bonneville Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Pontiac Bonneville get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Pontiac intended.
  • When should I have my Pontiac Bonneville power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Bonneville’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
