Pontiac manufactures vehicles which are designed for the highest performance, and that means the Firebird just doesn't run as designed without the best performance auto parts and accessories. Performance-oriented sets of wheels, such as the powerful Pontiac Firebird, are made to be used and even abused, and then given needed maintenance. It's not surprising that high-end drivers like you know how to focus on the performance of their Pontiac Firebird by installing performance-maximizing parts. Pontiac is a well-known producer of distinctive and dependable cars which have great looks and hold their value. When gas saving capabilities and long lasting performance are imperative for your regular commute, car buyers trust cars manufactured by Pontiac. That Pontiac in the garage was designed using the best quality and expertise; it needs new parts of the same top level of reliability. Installed between the suspension and the body of the automobile, Pontiac Firebird Shock Absorbers cushion the bouncing movement of the car. Pontiac Firebird Shock Absorbers work like large springs that resemble hydraulic pistons, transferring oil from chamber to chamber which dampens jolts and jars as the vehicle moves. Shock absorbers are split into two general types: spring shocks which use metal leaf springs, and torsional dampers which use a torsion spring. You picked a performance-optimized car or truck to enjoy its high-end engine power and performance, protect that decision by using the best aftermarket parts.

Research on Shock Absorber for Pontiac Firebird

Pontiac, an automobile manufacturer under the wing of vehicle giant General Motors, created a pony car that was popular with drivers for decades, and that car is the Pontiac Firebird. Starting production on the muscle car in 1967, it was built until 2002. It went through four generations, some of which become icons of the silver screen. You may remember that a Pontiac Firebird was used in the 1977 film Smokey and The Bandit, appearing in the Trans-Am Special Edition version of the Firebird.

No matter what version you are currently driving, you know that it pays for you and your passenger's safety to regularly take a look at the major systems that comprise your Pontiac, just to make sure that all the parts are working according to specifications. Parts that can wear out quickly, depending on the roads that you frequently travel upon, are the Pontiac Firebird shock absorbers. Related to the shock absorbers are the struts; both work to ensure that you have a smooth ride, and without them, a bouncy and uncomfortable drive would be the result.



What are shocks and struts?

Shock absorbers do just what their name implies: they help to reduce the shock your car's suspension system must withstand every time you drive over a bump or patch of rough road. Without them, your vehicle would be very bouncy to drive. The shocks fit inside the car's struts. Their job is to not only keep your vehicle suspended over the frame and wheels with the correct distance between them, so that the undercarriage of the vehicle does not slam into the wheels when you drive over bumps, but also to help you to turn the car left or right when you use your steering wheel. Repeatedly subjecting the shock absorbers and the struts to the friction imposed by bumpy roads will inevitably mean that they will need to be replaced from time to time as they wear out.

What are some ways to check your shocks to see if they are damaged?

One easy way to see if your Firebird needs new shock absorbers is to take it for a drive over a rough roadway; if you are bouncing all around as you sit inside, this can very well mean that your car needs new shocks and/or struts. The car should only bounce up and down once after travelling over a bump, but if it rocks up and down repeatedly, you may be looking at shock absorber replacement. If you hear knocking noises, or notice oil leaks or worn-out shock absorber bushings, or notice that your car's tires are wearing out unevenly, then these can all be indications that you need new shocks.

How much does it cost to get new shocks?

Getting a shock absorber replacement done at an independent auto repair shop will cost from $230 to $888 for new parts and labor. You could instead replace them yourself with quality parts from discount online source PartsGeek.com, and save a bundle.
