Suspension Service & Repair for 2008 GMC Acadia

Does Your 2008 GMC Acadia Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2008 GMC Acadia, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Acadia feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2008 GMC Acadia, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 GMC Acadia suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

GMC Acadia Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 GMC Acadia’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 GMC up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2008 GMC Acadia’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn GMC Acadia shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Acadia’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2008 GMC Acadia Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC Acadia? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • Does my GMC Acadia power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
