When should you have your 1991 Chevrolet S10 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1991 Chevrolet S10 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1991 Chevrolet S10, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your S10 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 Chevrolet S10, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your Chevrolet S10 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Chevrolet S10 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1991 Chevrolet S10’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. But there's no set schedule for 1991 Chevrolet S10 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Chevrolet S10 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1991 Chevrolet S10’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1991 S10 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my S10's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Chevrolet S10? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 S10 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your S10’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Chevrolet's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
