Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Pontiac T1000

Does Your 1985 Pontiac T1000 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Pontiac T1000, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your T1000 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1985 Pontiac T1000 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Pontiac T1000’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac T1000 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1985 Pontiac T1000’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your T1000’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Pontiac T1000 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1985 Pontiac T1000 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1985 T1000 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my T1000's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac T1000? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Pontiac intended.
  • Does my Pontiac T1000 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your T1000’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
