Suspension Service & Repair for 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche

When To Get 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. 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 2012 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, shocks, coil 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 Avalanche suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Chevrolet Avalanche’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Avalanche Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Avalanche shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Avalanche’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 Avalanche Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
