2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit 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 trouble is the best time to bring your 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Chevrolet Avalanche 1500’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Avalanche 1500’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Avalanche 1500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chevrolet Avalanche 1500? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Avalanche 1500 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Avalanche 1500 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
