Suspension Service & Repair for 1984 Chevrolet C20

Does Your 1984 Chevrolet C20 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1984 Chevrolet C20, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your C20 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1984 Chevrolet C20 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet C20 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1984 Chevrolet C20’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your C20’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Chevrolet C20 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 Chevrolet C20 suspension 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 1984 Chevrolet C20 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C20's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet C20? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Chevrolet intended.
  • When does Chevrolet C20 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your C20’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
