1987 Grand Am Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1987 Pontiac Grand Am Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1987 Pontiac Grand Am, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Grand Am feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1987 Pontiac Grand Am in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 Grand Am suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac Grand Am

Your 1987 Pontiac Grand Am’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. 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 1987 Pontiac Grand Am shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Pontiac Grand Am shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Pontiac Grand Am suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 Grand Am Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Grand Am's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Grand Am? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Pontiac intended.
  • Does my Pontiac Grand Am power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Grand Am is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
