It's a good idea to have your 1988 Chevrolet C2500 brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Chevrolet C2500 best. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Chevrolet advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 1988 Chevrolet C2500 brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 1988 Chevrolet C2500’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your C2500. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Chevrolet C2500 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Chevrolet's standards.
Your Chevrolet C2500 engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1988 Chevrolet C2500. We offer a variety of brake services like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange/bleeding, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
