When should you have your 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Trans Sport jolts, leans 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 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Trans Sport steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Pontiac Trans Sport

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport shock and strut replacement 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 Trans Sport shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 Trans Sport 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 let you know when it's time to replace your 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Pontiac Trans Sport? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Pontiac Trans Sport power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Trans Sport’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
