Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1999 Chevrolet Astro

When should you have your 1999 Chevrolet Astro suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1999 Chevrolet Astro Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1999 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. Perhaps your Astro feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1999 Chevrolet Astro in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Astro Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1999 Chevrolet Astro’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1999 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 signs of worn Chevrolet Astro shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 Chevrolet Astro’s 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.

1999 Astro Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chevrolet's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Chevrolet intended.
  • Does my Chevrolet Astro power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Astro’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
