When you first bought your 2008 Chevrolet Colorado, 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 Colorado 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 2008 Chevrolet Colorado in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Colorado suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Chevrolet Colorado 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 Colorado

Your 2008 Chevrolet Colorado’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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Colorado’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Chevrolet Colorado shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2008 Chevrolet Colorado suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
