1994 Chevrolet Astro Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Chevrolet Astro’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 1994 Chevrolet Astro Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1994 Chevrolet Astro, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Astro feels bouncy, leans 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 1994 Chevrolet Astro 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Astro 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 Chevrolet Astro 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet Astro

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1994 Chevrolet Astro suspension system. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1994 Chevrolet Astro shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Astro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1994 Chevrolet Astro’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1994 Astro Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's suspension? Maintaining your tires 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet Astro power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Astro is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
