When To Get 2002 Pontiac Sunfire Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2002 Pontiac Sunfire, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Sunfire bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2002 Pontiac Sunfire in for steering and suspension services. 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, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Sunfire 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac Sunfire

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2002 Pontiac Sunfire suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 2002 Pontiac Sunfire shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Pontiac Sunfire shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Sunfire’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Sunfire Steering & Suspension Q&A

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.
