Is It Time For 1990 Chevrolet C2500 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1990 Chevrolet C2500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your C2500 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1990 Chevrolet C2500 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your C2500 suspension system needs repair, 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’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Chevrolet C2500’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1990 Chevrolet C2500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Chevrolet C2500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 Chevrolet C2500’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.

1990 C2500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chevrolet's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chevrolet C2500? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Chevrolet intended.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet C2500 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your C2500’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
