2011 Avalanche Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Avalanche jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Avalanche shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Avalanche’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 Avalanche Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 alert you to the need for 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 should my Chevrolet Avalanche get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Avalanche’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
