Suspension Service & Repair for 2009 GMC Acadia

When To Get 2009 GMC Acadia Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2009 GMC Acadia, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Acadia bounces, drifts 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 2009 GMC Acadia, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Acadia suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your GMC Acadia’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

GMC Acadia Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2009 GMC Acadia suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Acadia’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your GMC Acadia shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 GMC Acadia suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2009 GMC Acadia Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my GMC's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new 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 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • Does my GMC Acadia 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’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
