During the first few years you had your 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your C10 Suburban feels bouncy, drifts 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 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Chevrolet C10 Suburban suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Your 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Chevrolet C10 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
