During the first few years you had your 2005 Pontiac GTO, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your GTO jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2005 Pontiac GTO in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your GTO 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 GTO 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.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2005 Pontiac GTO suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your GTO’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Pontiac GTO shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Pontiac GTO’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
