1996 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Service & Repair

1996 Chevrolet Corvette Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 1996 Chevrolet Corvette suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1996 Chevrolet Corvette, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Corvette bounces, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1996 Chevrolet Corvette, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 parts of your Chevrolet Corvette 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 Corvette

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Chevrolet Corvette’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1996 Chevrolet Corvette’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Corvette shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Chevrolet Corvette suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1996 Corvette Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Chevrolet's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Chevrolet Corvette 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Chevrolet intended.
  • When should I have my Chevrolet Corvette power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
