Suspension Service & Repair for 1997 Chevrolet Corvette

1997 Chevrolet Corvette Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Chevrolet recommend steering and suspension service for 1997 Chevrolet Corvettes?

Is It Time For 1997 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1997 Chevrolet Corvette, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Corvette feels bouncy, drifts 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 1997 Chevrolet Corvette, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Chevrolet Corvette Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1997 Chevrolet Corvette’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. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Corvette’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Corvette shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Chevrolet Corvette suspension 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.

1997 Corvette Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Corvette's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chevrolet Corvette? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Chevrolet intended.
  • Does my Chevrolet Corvette power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Chevrolet service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
