2008 G8 Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2008 Pontiac G8 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2008 Pontiac G8, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your G8 feels bouncy, 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 2008 Pontiac G8, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Pontiac G8’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 G8 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2008 Pontiac G8’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2008 Pontiac G8 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Pontiac G8 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Pontiac G8 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.

2008 G8 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my G8's steering and 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac G8? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • Does my Pontiac G8 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
