Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Pontiac Bonneville

When To Get 1987 Pontiac Bonneville Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1987 Pontiac Bonneville, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Bonneville jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Pontiac Bonneville, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Bonneville suspension system needs repair, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac Bonneville

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1987 Pontiac Bonneville suspension system. 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 1987 Pontiac Bonneville’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Pontiac Bonneville shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Bonneville’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 Bonneville Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac Bonneville? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Bonneville’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
