Suspension Service & Repair for 2003 Pontiac Grand Am

When To Get 2003 Pontiac Grand Am Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2003 Pontiac Grand Am, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Grand Am jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2003 Pontiac Grand Am in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac Grand Am Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2003 Pontiac Grand Am’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Pontiac Grand Am shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2003 Pontiac Grand Am’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
