Does Your 1983 GMC C2500 Suburban Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1983 GMC C2500 Suburban, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough.

As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1983 GMC C2500 Suburban, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your GMC C2500 Suburban’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn GMC C2500 Suburban shocks and struts.
