2005 GTO Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2005 Pontiac GTO Suspension Service

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.

Pontiac GTO Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

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.

2005 GTO Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Pontiac's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac GTO? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Pontiac intended.
  • When should I have my Pontiac GTO power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your GTO’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
