2010 Chevrolet Avalanche Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Avalanche bounces, leans 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 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Avalanche steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Chevrolet Avalanche Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Avalanche shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Avalanche's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet Avalanche? 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • Does my Chevrolet Avalanche 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’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
