2005 Chevrolet Blazer Maintenance Schedule

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

Is It Time For 2005 Chevrolet Blazer Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2005 Chevrolet Blazer, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Blazer jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2005 Chevrolet Blazer, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Blazer suspension system needs repair, 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Chevrolet Blazer Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Chevrolet Blazer’s suspension. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Blazer’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Blazer shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Chevrolet Blazer’s 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.

2005 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 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. 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.
  • Does my Chevrolet Blazer power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Blazer is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
