Suspension Service & Repair for 2001 Chevrolet Blazer

2001 Chevrolet Blazer Maintenance and Service Schedule

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

Does Your 2001 Chevrolet Blazer Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2001 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, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2001 Chevrolet Blazer in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your Blazer steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 2001 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. 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, 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 2001 Chevrolet Blazer suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2001 Blazer Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chevrolet's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
