1986 Pontiac Parisienne Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 1986 Pontiac Parisienne Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1986 Pontiac Parisienne, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Parisienne feels bouncy, sways 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 1986 Pontiac Parisienne, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub 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 parts of your Pontiac Parisienne 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 Parisienne Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Pontiac Parisienne suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1986 Pontiac Parisienne shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Pontiac Parisienne shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1986 Pontiac Parisienne’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1986 Parisienne Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Parisienne's steering and 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 Parisienne? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 Parisienne power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Parisienne is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
