1986 C10 Suburban Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1986 Chevrolet C10 Suburban Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1986 Chevrolet C10 Suburban, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C10 Suburban jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1986 Chevrolet C10 Suburban in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 Chevrolet C10 Suburban’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet C10 Suburban Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1986 Chevrolet C10 Suburban suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your C10 Suburban’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Chevrolet C10 Suburban shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Chevrolet C10 Suburban suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
