1984 Pontiac Grand Prix Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Grand Prix feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Grand Prix suspension system needs repair, 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 Prix’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Pontiac Grand Prix shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 Pontiac Grand Prix suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1984 Grand Prix Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Grand Prix? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • When does Pontiac Grand Prix power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Grand Prix’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
