Is It Time For 1990 Chevrolet C1500 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1990 Chevrolet C1500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your C1500 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 Chevrolet C1500, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your C1500 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your C1500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet C1500 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 Chevrolet C1500 suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1990 Chevrolet C1500’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Chevrolet C1500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Chevrolet C1500 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1990 Chevrolet C1500 Steering & Suspension

  • 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. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chevrolet C1500? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Chevrolet intended.
  • When does Chevrolet C1500 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
