2009 Pontiac G8 Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2009 Pontiac G8 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2009 Pontiac G8, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your G8 bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2009 Pontiac G8 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 G8 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac G8

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 Pontiac G8 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 2009 Pontiac G8’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Pontiac G8 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Pontiac G8 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

2009 G8 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 G8 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your G8 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
