When To Get 1997 Pontiac Bonneville Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Bonneville jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville, bring it 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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.

Pontiac Bonneville Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Bonneville’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Pontiac Bonneville shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1997 Bonneville Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Pontiac's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Bonneville? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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.
  • Does my Pontiac Bonneville power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Bonneville is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
