2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Avalanche 1500 feels bouncy, pulls 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 2004 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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Chevrolet Avalanche 1500’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 Avalanche 1500 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy.

But there's no set schedule for 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, 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 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
