2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Avalanche 1500 feels bouncy, drifts 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 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 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 absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Chevrolet Avalanche 1500’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2003 Avalanche 1500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Avalanche 1500's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet Avalanche 1500? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change.
