2001 Grand Am Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2001 Pontiac Grand Am Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2001 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, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2001 Pontiac Grand Am, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Grand Am suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2001 Pontiac Grand Am’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2001 Pontiac Grand Am’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Pontiac Grand Am shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2001 Pontiac Grand Am suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2001 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac Grand Am? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Pontiac Grand Am power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
