When should you have your 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1996 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 bounces, sways 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 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix in for suspension and steering service. 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, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Pontiac Grand Prix Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up 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. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, 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 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1996 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Grand Prix? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Pontiac Grand Prix power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Grand Prix’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
