2013 Acadia GMC Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2013 GMC Acadia Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2013 GMC Acadia, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Acadia feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 GMC Acadia in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your GMC Acadia

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 GMC Acadia’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up 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. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your GMC Acadia shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Acadia’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
