1989 Grand Prix Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Grand Prix bounces, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle 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 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 your Grand Prix steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac Grand Prix

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 Prix’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Pontiac Grand Prix shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Grand Prix’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Pontiac's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires 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.
