Not sure when or if your Pontiac Montana’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1999 Pontiac Montana Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1999 Pontiac Montana, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Montana feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1999 Pontiac Montana in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel 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 what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Pontiac Montana’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 Montana Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1999 Pontiac Montana’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Montana’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Pontiac Montana shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Montana’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.

Questions About 1999 Pontiac Montana Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 should my Pontiac Montana 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 Montana power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Montana’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
