1987 Grand Prix Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Grand Prix feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Grand Prix suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Pontiac Grand Prix 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 Prix Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix’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. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Pontiac Grand Prix shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Grand Prix's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac Grand Prix? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • When should I have my Pontiac Grand Prix power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
