Is It Time For 1988 Pontiac LeMans Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1988 Pontiac LeMans, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your LeMans feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1988 Pontiac LeMans in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your LeMans 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 LeMans 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.

Pontiac LeMans Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Pontiac LeMans suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1988 Pontiac LeMans shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Pontiac LeMans shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 Pontiac LeMans’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 LeMans Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my LeMans's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 LeMans? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Pontiac intended.
  • Does my Pontiac LeMans 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 LeMans is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • What can cause my Pontiac LeMans to have a bouncy ride? Excessive bouncing in your Pontiac LeMans might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • Why does my LeMans tilt forward when I hit the brakes? The forward dip in the front end of your LeMans when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • How do I know if I have worn Pontiac LeMans shocks? Worn shock absorbers can’t absorb road bumps well, making your LeMans feel like it’s leaning or swaying when you turn. You may also experience more shaking, rocking, or bouncing than usual as your LeMans travels over minor bumps.
