2005 Pontiac G6 Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2005 Pontiac G6 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2005 Pontiac G6, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your G6 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 2005 Pontiac G6 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Pontiac G6’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 G6 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2005 Pontiac G6’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2005 Pontiac G6’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Pontiac G6 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your G6’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 G6 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Pontiac G6 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Pontiac intended.
  • When should I have my Pontiac G6 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your G6 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
