When you first drove your 1988 GMC C1500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C1500 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1988 GMC C1500, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your GMC C1500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.
Your 1988 GMC C1500’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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1988 GMC C1500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC C1500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1988 GMC C1500’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.
