Is It Time For 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1999 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 bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your C1500 Suburban suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your GMC C1500 Suburban suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC C1500 Suburban Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC C1500 Suburban shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 1999 GMC C1500 Suburban Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C1500 Suburban's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new 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? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • When should I have my GMC C1500 Suburban power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your C1500 Suburban’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
