1987 Safari Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1987 Pontiac Safari Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1987 Pontiac Safari, 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 Safari jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1987 Pontiac Safari, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Pontiac Safari’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac Safari Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 Pontiac Safari’s suspension. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1987 Pontiac Safari shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Pontiac Safari shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Pontiac Safari suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1987 Safari Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Safari's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Safari? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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.
  • When should I have my Pontiac Safari power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Safari’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
