1983 Chevrolet C20 Suburban Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1983 Chevrolet C20 Suburban Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1983 Chevrolet C20 Suburban, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your C20 Suburban feels bouncy, leans 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 1983 Chevrolet C20 Suburban in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your C20 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 C20 Suburban’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet C20 Suburban Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Chevrolet C20 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Chevrolet C20 Suburban’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Chevrolet C20 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 Chevrolet C20 Suburban’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1983 C20 Suburban Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet C20 Suburban? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • Does my Chevrolet C20 Suburban power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your C20 Suburban’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
