When To Get 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Bolt EV feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Bolt EV suspension system needs repair, 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 parts of your Chevrolet Bolt EV suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet Bolt EV

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 Bolt EV’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Bolt EV shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Bolt EV’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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 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 Bolt EV? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Chevrolet intended.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet Bolt EV power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Bolt EV’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
