Is It Time For 1990 Chevrolet C3500 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1990 Chevrolet C3500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your C3500 bounces, sways 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 C3500 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 C3500’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet C3500 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Chevrolet C3500’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 1990 Chevrolet C3500 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Chevrolet C3500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 Chevrolet C3500 suspension 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 C3500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • 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 alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet C3500? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 should I have my Chevrolet C3500 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your C3500 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
