Suspension Service & Repair for 1989 Chevrolet C3500

Is It Time For 1989 Chevrolet C3500 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1989 Chevrolet C3500, 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 C3500 jolts, leans 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 1989 Chevrolet C3500 in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your C3500 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your C3500 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 C3500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1989 Chevrolet C3500’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chevrolet up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1989 Chevrolet C3500 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet C3500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1989 Chevrolet C3500 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

1989 C3500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Chevrolet C3500 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • When does Chevrolet C3500 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your C3500 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
