1988 C1500 Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1988 Chevrolet C1500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1988 Chevrolet C1500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your C1500 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 Chevrolet C1500 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Chevrolet C1500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet C1500 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 Chevrolet C1500 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out.

A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Chevrolet C1500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 Chevrolet C1500 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.
