Suspension Service & Repair for 2006 Chevrolet Corvette

Is It Time For 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 2006 Chevrolet Corvette, 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 Corvette bounces, drifts 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 2006 Chevrolet Corvette in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chevrolet Corvette

Your 2006 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Chevrolet up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2006 Chevrolet Corvette shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Corvette shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2006 Chevrolet Corvette’s 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.

2006 Corvette Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Corvette's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new 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. 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? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Corvette’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
