Is It Time For 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C20 Suburban bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel 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 C20 Suburban steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet C20 Suburban Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet C20 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C20 Suburban’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1985 C20 Suburban Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Chevrolet C20 Suburban get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet C20 Suburban power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your C20 Suburban is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
