Is It Time For 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your C1500 Suburban jolts, pulls 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 1998 Chevrolet C1500 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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your C1500 Suburban 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 your Chevrolet C1500 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 C1500 Suburban Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet C1500 Suburban shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1998 C1500 Suburban Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 C1500 Suburban? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet C1500 Suburban power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your C1500 Suburban’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
