When you first bought your 1983 Pontiac Phoenix, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Phoenix bounces, drifts 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 1983 Pontiac Phoenix in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Phoenix steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.
Your 1983 Pontiac Phoenix’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1983 Pontiac Phoenix shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Pontiac Phoenix shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Phoenix’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
