1984 GMC C1500 Suburban Suspension Service & Repair

When To Get 1984 GMC C1500 Suburban Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1984 GMC C1500 Suburban, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your C1500 Suburban feels bouncy, pulls 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 1984 GMC C1500 Suburban in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your GMC C1500 Suburban’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 C1500 Suburban Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1984 GMC C1500 Suburban’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1984 GMC C1500 Suburban’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn GMC C1500 Suburban shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 GMC C1500 Suburban suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1984 C1500 Suburban Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C1500 Suburban's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my GMC C1500 Suburban 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 C1500 Suburban 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 C1500 Suburban is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
