Suspension Service & Repair for 1999 Chevrolet Corvette

Does Your 1999 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1999 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. Maybe your Corvette 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 1999 Chevrolet Corvette in for suspension and steering service. 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 dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 your Corvette steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet Corvette Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1999 Chevrolet Corvette suspension system. 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 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 Corvette’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Chevrolet Corvette shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 Chevrolet Corvette’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.

Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does Chevrolet Corvette 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.
