2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Grand Prix bounces, drifts 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 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. 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 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 2000 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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Pontiac Grand Prix shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2000 Grand Prix Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Grand Prix? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your 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 Grand Prix is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
