Is It Time For 1997 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1997 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban, 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 C2500 Suburban bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1997 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet C2500 Suburban

Your 1997 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chevrolet up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your C2500 Suburban’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Chevrolet C2500 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
