Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1998 Chevrolet C3500

When should you have your 1998 Chevrolet C3500 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1998 Chevrolet C3500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1998 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 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1998 Chevrolet C3500 in for suspension and steering service. 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, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 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 1998 Chevrolet C3500’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 1998 Chevrolet C3500 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Chevrolet C3500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C3500’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1998 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chevrolet C3500? 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 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’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
