When you first bought your 1989 Pontiac Safari, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Safari bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 Pontiac Safari 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 absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 parts of your Pontiac Safari 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.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Pontiac Safari suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 Pontiac Safari’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Pontiac Safari shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Pontiac Safari suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
