2012 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2012 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, sways 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 2012 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, 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 car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Chevrolet Corvette’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 2012 Chevrolet Corvette’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Chevrolet Corvette shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Corvette’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 Corvette Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Corvette's steering and 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet Corvette? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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 top it off per Chevrolet's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
