2006 Grand Prix Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2006 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, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac Grand Prix

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix suspension system. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Pontiac Grand Prix shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2006 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Pontiac intended.
  • Does my Pontiac Grand Prix power steering fluid need to be 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.
