Does Your 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C1500 Suburban jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban 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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your C1500 Suburban steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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 C1500 Suburban

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet C1500 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1996 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1996 C1500 Suburban Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chevrolet's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Why should my Chevrolet C1500 Suburban get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet C1500 Suburban power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your C1500 Suburban’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
