2003 Bonneville Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

2003 Pontiac Bonneville Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Pontiac recommend steering and suspension service for 2003 Pontiac Bonnevilles?

Does Your 2003 Pontiac Bonneville Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2003 Pontiac Bonneville, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Bonneville bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2003 Pontiac Bonneville in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Pontiac Bonneville suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Pontiac Bonneville Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2003 Pontiac Bonneville suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Bonneville’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Pontiac Bonneville shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2003 Pontiac Bonneville’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2003 Bonneville Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Bonneville? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
