2002 Grand Am Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2002 Pontiac Grand Am Suspension Service

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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac Grand Am

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. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Grand Am Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Pontiac intended.
  • Does my Pontiac Grand Am power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Grand Am’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
