When To Get 2002 Pontiac Bonneville Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2002 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, pulls 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 2002 Pontiac Bonneville in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac Bonneville

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2002 Pontiac Bonneville’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Pontiac Bonneville shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Pontiac Bonneville suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Bonneville Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Bonneville's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac Bonneville? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Pontiac Bonneville power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Bonneville is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
