Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 Chevrolet C20

When To Get 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1985 Chevrolet C20, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your C20 jolts, 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 1985 Chevrolet C20 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub 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 your Chevrolet C20’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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1985 Chevrolet C20’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 Chevrolet C20’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Chevrolet C20 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C20’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 C20 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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. 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 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
