When you first drove your 1997 GMC C1500 Suburban, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C1500 Suburban jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn.

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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your GMC C1500 Suburban suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

GMC C1500 Suburban Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1997 GMC C1500 Suburban’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. 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. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn GMC C1500 Suburban shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 GMC C1500 Suburban suspension 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.

1997 C1500 Suburban Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC C1500 Suburban? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my GMC C1500 Suburban power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your C1500 Suburban is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
