Does Your 1990 Chevrolet Astro Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1990 Chevrolet Astro, 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 Astro 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 Chevrolet Astro 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Astro suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Astro 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.

Chevrolet Astro Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Chevrolet Astro’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Astro’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Astro shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Chevrolet Astro 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.

Questions About 1990 Chevrolet Astro Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Astro's steering and 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Chevrolet Astro get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet Astro power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Astro is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
