When To Get 1996 Chevrolet Caprice Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1996 Chevrolet Caprice, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Caprice jolts, pulls 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 1996 Chevrolet Caprice in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Caprice suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Chevrolet Caprice suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Caprice Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1996 Chevrolet Caprice’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 1996 Chevrolet Caprice shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Caprice shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Caprice’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
