1990 Pontiac Bonneville Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Pontiac recommend steering and suspension service for 1990 Pontiac Bonnevilles?

Does Your 1990 Pontiac Bonneville Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Pontiac Bonneville, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Bonneville bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 Pontiac Bonneville in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Pontiac Bonneville’s suspension. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1990 Pontiac Bonneville’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Pontiac Bonneville shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 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.

1990 Bonneville Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Bonneville's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Bonneville? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Bonneville’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
