When To Get 1990 GMC C1500 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1990 GMC C1500, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C1500 jolts, leans 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 1990 GMC C1500 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your C1500 suspension system needs repair, 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 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 GMC C1500 suspension system. 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 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’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your GMC C1500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C1500’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 C1500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's 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. 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? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does GMC C1500 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months.
