Is the steering and suspension system in your Pontiac Trans Sport due for service yet?

Does Your 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Trans Sport jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Trans Sport suspension system needs repair, 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 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Pontiac up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Pontiac Trans Sport shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1998 Trans Sport Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Pontiac intended.
  • When does Pontiac Trans Sport 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 Trans Sport’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Pontiac service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
