2008 Avalanche Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Avalanche bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Chevrolet Avalanche’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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche’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 signs of worn Chevrolet Avalanche shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
