When To Get 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Avalanche 2500 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 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, 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 parts of your Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chevrolet up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2006 Avalanche 2500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Avalanche 2500'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. 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 2500? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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.
  • Does my Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Avalanche 2500’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
