When To Get 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1998 Chevrolet C1500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your C1500 jolts, 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 1998 Chevrolet C1500, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet C1500

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Chevrolet C1500’s suspension. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1998 Chevrolet C1500 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Chevrolet C1500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 Chevrolet C1500’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C1500's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chevrolet C1500? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way 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 C1500 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
