1990 Chevrolet Blazer Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1990 Chevrolet Blazer Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1990 Chevrolet Blazer, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Blazer feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 Chevrolet Blazer, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 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.

Chevrolet Blazer Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Chevrolet Blazer’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Blazer’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Blazer shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Chevrolet Blazer suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1990 Blazer Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet Blazer? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet Blazer power steering fluid 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’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
