Is It Time For 1996 Pontiac Firebird Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1996 Pontiac Firebird, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Firebird feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1996 Pontiac Firebird in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Firebird suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Firebird steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac Firebird Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Pontiac Firebird suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 Firebird’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 rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Pontiac Firebird shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1996 Pontiac Firebird’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.

1996 Firebird Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Firebird'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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Firebird? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • Does my Pontiac Firebird 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 Firebird’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
