1996 Chevrolet C2500 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1996 Chevrolet C2500 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1996 Chevrolet C2500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1996 Chevrolet C2500, 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 jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1996 Chevrolet C2500 in for suspension and steering service. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your C2500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet C2500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Chevrolet C2500’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1996 Chevrolet C2500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet C2500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Chevrolet C2500 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
