Does Your 1985 Chevrolet C10 Suburban Suspension Need Inspection?

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.

Chevrolet C10 Suburban Shock & Strut Replacement Services

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.

1985 C10 Suburban Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C10 Suburban's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Chevrolet C10 Suburban get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • When does Chevrolet C10 Suburban power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your C10 Suburban’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • Why is my Chevrolet C10 Suburban bouncing excessively? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my C10 Suburban front end dip forward when I brake? As you brake, the forward momentum of your C10 Suburban combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • What are the signs that the shocks on my Chevrolet C10 Suburban need replacing? Worn C10 Suburban shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your C10 Suburban might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your C10 Suburban shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
