1998 Chevrolet Blazer Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Chevrolet Blazer’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1998 Chevrolet Blazer Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1998 Chevrolet Blazer, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! 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 1998 Chevrolet Blazer in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 Blazer steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Blazer Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Chevrolet Blazer suspension system. 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 getting your 1998 Chevrolet Blazer’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn 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. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1998 Chevrolet Blazer Steering & Suspension

  • 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 help you notice when you need 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chevrolet Blazer? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet Blazer power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Blazer is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
