1985 Pontiac Grand Am Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 1985 Pontiac Grand Am Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1985 Pontiac Grand Am, 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 Grand Am jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1985 Pontiac Grand Am, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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 dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Pontiac Grand Am’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 Grand Am Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 Pontiac Grand Am’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 getting your 1985 Pontiac Grand Am’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Pontiac Grand Am shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Grand Am’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
