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.
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.
