1983 Pontiac Grand Prix Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1983 Pontiac Grand Prix Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1983 Pontiac Grand Prix, 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 Prix jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1983 Pontiac Grand Prix, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Pontiac Grand Prix 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.

Pontiac Grand Prix Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 Pontiac Grand Prix’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Pontiac Grand Prix’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Pontiac Grand Prix shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Pontiac Grand Prix’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1983 Grand Prix Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Pontiac Grand Prix 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Pontiac intended.
  • Does my Pontiac Grand Prix power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Grand Prix is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
