2012 Chevrolet Caprice Suspension Service & Repair

Is It Time For 2012 Chevrolet Caprice Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2012 Chevrolet Caprice, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Caprice feels bouncy, sways 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 2012 Chevrolet Caprice in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 parts of your Chevrolet Caprice suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet Caprice

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Chevrolet Caprice suspension system. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2012 Chevrolet Caprice’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Caprice shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2012 Chevrolet Caprice’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 Caprice Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chevrolet's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Chevrolet Caprice get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 Caprice power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Caprice is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
