When should you have your 1998 Chevrolet Astro suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1998 Chevrolet Astro Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1998 Chevrolet Astro, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Astro feels bouncy, 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 Chevrolet Astro in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Chevrolet Astro’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Astro Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Chevrolet Astro’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 Chevrolet up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Astro’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Astro shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Astro’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1998 Chevrolet Astro Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet'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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chevrolet Astro? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • When does Chevrolet Astro 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 Astro is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
