Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1991 Pontiac Sunbird

Not sure when or if your Pontiac Sunbird’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 1991 Pontiac Sunbird Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1991 Pontiac Sunbird, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Sunbird bounces, leans 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 1991 Pontiac Sunbird in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Sunbird suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Sunbird steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Pontiac Sunbird Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1991 Pontiac Sunbird suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Sunbird’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Pontiac Sunbird shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 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.

1991 Sunbird Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Pontiac intended.
  • Does my Pontiac Sunbird power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Sunbird’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
