During the first few years you had your 2002 Pontiac Grand Am, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Grand Am feels bouncy, sways 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 2002 Pontiac Grand Am in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper 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 your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Pontiac Grand Am’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.
Your 2002 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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Pontiac Grand Am shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2002 Pontiac Grand Am suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
