Is It Time For 1991 GMC C1500 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1991 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. Perhaps your C1500 feels bouncy, leans 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 1991 GMC C1500 in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your C1500 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1991 GMC C1500 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1991 GMC C1500 shock and strut replacement 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 good idea to have your 1991 GMC 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.
