Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 Pontiac T1000

When To Get 1987 Pontiac T1000 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1987 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, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1987 Pontiac T1000 in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Pontiac T1000 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1987 Pontiac T1000’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. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1987 Pontiac T1000 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Pontiac T1000 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 Pontiac T1000 suspension 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.

1987 T1000 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Pontiac's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Pontiac T1000 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your 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? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your T1000 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
