When To Get 1999 Pontiac Sunfire Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1999 Pontiac Sunfire, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Sunfire feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1999 Pontiac Sunfire, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your Pontiac Sunfire suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac Sunfire Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1999 Pontiac Sunfire’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1999 Pontiac Sunfire shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Pontiac Sunfire shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Sunfire’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
