When To Get 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Trans Sport feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Trans Sport suspension system needs repair, 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Pontiac Trans Sport shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Trans Sport’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 Trans Sport Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Trans Sport's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Pontiac Trans Sport get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Pontiac's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
