2017 GMC Acadia Limited Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 2017 GMC Acadia Limited Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2017 GMC Acadia Limited, 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 Acadia Limited bounces, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2017 GMC Acadia Limited 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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 Acadia Limited steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

GMC Acadia Limited Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 GMC Acadia Limited’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Acadia Limited’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn GMC Acadia Limited shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2017 GMC Acadia Limited suspension 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.

Questions About 2017 GMC Acadia Limited Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my GMC's 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 should my GMC Acadia Limited 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. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • Does my GMC Acadia Limited 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 Acadia Limited’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
