Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1991 Pontiac Grand Am

When should you have your 1991 Pontiac Grand Am suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1991 Pontiac Grand Am Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1991 Pontiac Grand Am, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Grand Am feels bouncy, drifts 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 1991 Pontiac Grand Am in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub 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 1991 Pontiac Grand Am’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Grand Am’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the 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 1991 Pontiac Grand Am suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1991 Pontiac Grand Am Steering & Suspension

  • 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Pontiac Grand Am get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Pontiac intended.
  • When should I have my Pontiac Grand Am power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Grand Am’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
