Is It Time For 1986 Pontiac T1000 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1986 Pontiac T1000, 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. Maybe your T1000 jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1986 Pontiac T1000, bring it 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your T1000 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Pontiac T1000 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac T1000 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1986 Pontiac T1000’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 1986 Pontiac T1000 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Pontiac T1000 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Pontiac T1000 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1986 T1000 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac T1000? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Pontiac intended.
  • When should I have my Pontiac T1000 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
  • Why is my Pontiac T1000 bouncing so much? If your shocks or struts are in bad shape, they can’t dampen road bumps like they should. This can cause your T1000 to bounce more than usual.
  • What can cause the front end of my T1000 to dip forward when I apply the brakes? The forward dip in the front end of your T1000 when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • How do I know if I have worn Pontiac T1000 shocks? Worn T1000 shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your T1000 might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your T1000 shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
