1988 Blazer Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1988 Chevrolet Blazer Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1988 Chevrolet Blazer, 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 Blazer bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1988 Chevrolet Blazer in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Chevrolet Blazer’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet Blazer

Your 1988 Chevrolet Blazer’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. 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 1988 Chevrolet Blazer’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Blazer shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Blazer’s 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.

1988 Blazer Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chevrolet's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 Blazer get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Chevrolet Blazer 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 Blazer’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
