Getting your 1983 C20 Suburban’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Chevrolet C20 Suburban better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like Chevrolet generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1983 Chevrolet C20 Suburban brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Properly maintaining your brake system is so important.
How often do 1983 Chevrolet C20 Suburban brake pads need to be replaced? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your C20 Suburban right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Chevrolet C20 Suburban brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Chevrolet's standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Chevrolet C20 Suburban. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1983 Chevrolet C20 Suburban. Our brake repair services include pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
