Is It Time For 1998 GMC C1500 Suburban Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1998 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. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 GMC C1500 Suburban in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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 dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your C1500 Suburban suspension system needs repair, 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 your C1500 Suburban steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, 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

Your 1998 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 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. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your GMC C1500 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C1500 Suburban’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C1500 Suburban's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC C1500 Suburban? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how GMC intended.
  • Does my GMC C1500 Suburban power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your C1500 Suburban’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
