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 components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Avalanche 1500 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost.

Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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 Avalanche 1500’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.
