2002 Blazer Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

2002 Chevrolet Blazer Maintenance Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Chevrolet Blazer due for service yet?

Does Your 2002 Chevrolet Blazer Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2002 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, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2002 Chevrolet Blazer in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 2002 Chevrolet Blazer’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2002 Chevrolet Blazer’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Blazer shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2002 Chevrolet Blazer’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2002 Blazer Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chevrolet's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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. 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • Does my Chevrolet Blazer power steering fluid need to be 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 can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
