Is the steering and suspension system in your Pontiac Firebird due for service yet?

When To Get 1990 Pontiac Firebird Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1990 Pontiac Firebird, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Firebird feels bouncy, pulls 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 1990 Pontiac Firebird, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Pontiac Firebird suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac Firebird Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Pontiac Firebird’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Firebird’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Pontiac Firebird shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Firebird’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.

1990 Firebird Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • Why should my Pontiac Firebird get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Pontiac Firebird power steering fluid 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.
