2008 G6 Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2008 Pontiac G6 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2008 Pontiac G6, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your G6 jolts, leans 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 2008 Pontiac G6 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your G6 suspension system needs repair, 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 parts of your Pontiac G6 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac G6

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Pontiac G6’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. But there's no set schedule for 2008 Pontiac G6 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. 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 regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2008 G6 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac G6? 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 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’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
