2006 Torrent Pontiac Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2006 Pontiac Torrent Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2006 Pontiac Torrent, 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 Torrent jolts, 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 2006 Pontiac Torrent in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle 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 what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Torrent steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Pontiac Torrent Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2006 Pontiac Torrent suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Torrent’s shocks and struts 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 indicators of worn Pontiac Torrent shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2006 Pontiac Torrent’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2006 Pontiac Torrent Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Pontiac's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Pontiac Torrent? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • When does Pontiac Torrent power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Torrent’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
