1984 Fiero Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1984 Pontiac Fiero Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1984 Pontiac Fiero, 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 Fiero bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1984 Pontiac Fiero in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Pontiac Fiero’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 Fiero Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1984 Pontiac Fiero’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 Fiero’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Pontiac Fiero shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1984 Pontiac Fiero’s 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.

1984 Fiero Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 alert you to the need for 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 Fiero? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Pontiac intended.
  • Does my Pontiac Fiero 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 Fiero is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
