2006 GTO Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2006 Pontiac GTO Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2006 Pontiac GTO, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your GTO bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2006 Pontiac GTO, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Pontiac GTO’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac GTO Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2006 Pontiac GTO’s suspension. 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 factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Pontiac GTO shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Pontiac GTO suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2006 GTO Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important 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 connect with the road how Pontiac intended.
  • When should I have my Pontiac GTO power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your GTO’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
