1989 Sunbird Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1989 Pontiac Sunbird Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1989 Pontiac Sunbird, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Sunbird feels bouncy, 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 Sunbird in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 Sunbird 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.

Pontiac Sunbird Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 Pontiac Sunbird 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 1989 Pontiac Sunbird shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Pontiac Sunbird shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Pontiac Sunbird’s 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.

1989 Sunbird Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Pontiac's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need 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 Sunbird? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 Sunbird power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Sunbird is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
