Not sure when or if your Pontiac Firebird’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1999 Pontiac Firebird Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1999 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, leans 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 1999 Pontiac Firebird in for steering and suspension services. 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Firebird suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Firebird steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac Firebird Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1999 Pontiac Firebird’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 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 factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, 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 1999 Pontiac Firebird’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
