Suspension Service & Repair for 2018 GMC Acadia

Is It Time For 2018 GMC Acadia Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2018 GMC Acadia, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Acadia jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2018 GMC Acadia, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Acadia suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 2018 GMC Acadia suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2018 GMC Acadia shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, 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 checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2018 GMC Acadia Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC Acadia? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • When should I have my GMC Acadia power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Acadia is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
