Is It Time For 1993 Pontiac Grand Am Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1993 Pontiac Grand Am, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Grand Am jolts, sways 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 1993 Pontiac Grand Am in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac Grand Am Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1993 Pontiac Grand Am’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. 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 rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Pontiac Grand Am shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1993 Pontiac Grand Am’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1993 Grand Am Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac Grand Am? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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 can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
