Suspension Service & Repair for 2003 Pontiac Montana

When To Get 2003 Pontiac Montana Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2003 Pontiac Montana, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Montana jolts, sways 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 2003 Pontiac Montana in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Pontiac Montana suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac Montana Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2003 Pontiac Montana 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 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 affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Pontiac Montana shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Pontiac Montana suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2003 Montana Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Montana? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Pontiac intended.
  • When does Pontiac Montana power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Montana is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
