Is It Time For 1994 GMC C1500 Suburban Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1994 GMC C1500 Suburban, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your C1500 Suburban jolts, 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 1994 GMC C1500 Suburban, 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 check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your GMC C1500 Suburban’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.

GMC C1500 Suburban Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1994 GMC C1500 Suburban’s suspension. 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 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 C1500 Suburban’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn GMC C1500 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1994 GMC C1500 Suburban’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.
