1983 C20 Chevrolet Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 1983 Chevrolet C20 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1983 Chevrolet C20, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your C20 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1983 Chevrolet C20 in for steering and suspension services. 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Chevrolet C20 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Chevrolet C20 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1983 Chevrolet C20 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chevrolet up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1983 Chevrolet C20’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet C20 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C20’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1983 Chevrolet C20 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet C20? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Chevrolet C20 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 C20’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
