Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet Blazer

Your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chevrolet up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1989 Chevrolet Blazer shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Blazer shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
