When To Get 1999 Chevrolet C3500 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1999 Chevrolet C3500, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C3500 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1999 Chevrolet C3500, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Chevrolet C3500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1999 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1999 Chevrolet C3500 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Chevrolet C3500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1999 Chevrolet C3500 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1999 C3500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C3500's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Chevrolet intended.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet C3500 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your C3500’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
