2010 Acadia GMC Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2010 GMC Acadia Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2010 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, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2010 GMC Acadia in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 your GMC Acadia’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your GMC Acadia

Your 2010 GMC Acadia’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. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2010 GMC Acadia shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn GMC Acadia shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2010 GMC Acadia’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.

2010 Acadia Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Acadia's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my GMC Acadia 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does GMC Acadia power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Acadia’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
