2003 Chevrolet Astro Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2003 Chevrolet Astro suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2003 Chevrolet Astro Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2003 Chevrolet Astro, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Astro bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2003 Chevrolet Astro in for steering and suspension services. 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, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2003 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2003 Chevrolet Astro’s shocks and struts replaced 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 2003 Chevrolet Astro suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2003 Astro Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chevrolet Astro? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
