When To Get 1998 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1998 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your C2500 Suburban feels bouncy, leans 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 1998 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 C2500 Suburban 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet C2500 Suburban

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 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 rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet C2500 Suburban shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
