Is It Time For 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Trans Sport bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Pontiac Trans Sport suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Pontiac Trans Sport Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport’s suspension. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Trans Sport’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Pontiac Trans Sport shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport 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.

1996 Trans Sport Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Pontiac's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Pontiac Trans Sport 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 top it off per Pontiac's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
