When To Get 1996 Pontiac Bonneville Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1996 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, pulls 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 1996 Pontiac Bonneville in for suspension and steering service. 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 dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle 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 Bonneville steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac Bonneville

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1996 Pontiac Bonneville’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Pontiac Bonneville shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1996 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.

1996 Bonneville Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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? 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.
  • Does my Pontiac Bonneville power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Bonneville is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
