Suspension Service & Repair for 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix

When To Get 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1998 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, leans 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 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Grand Prix steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac Grand Prix

Your 1998 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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix shock and strut replacement 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 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix Steering & Suspension

  • 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. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Pontiac Grand Prix get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Grand Prix’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
