2009 Pontiac G5 Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2009 Pontiac G5 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2009 Pontiac G5, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your G5 jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2009 Pontiac G5, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your G5 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Pontiac G5 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2009 Pontiac G5’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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2009 Pontiac G5 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Pontiac G5 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Pontiac G5 suspension 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.

2009 G5 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac G5? 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.
  • When should I have my Pontiac G5 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your G5 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
