1998 GMC C2500 Suburban Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your GMC C2500 Suburban’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 1998 GMC C2500 Suburban Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1998 GMC C2500 Suburban, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your C2500 Suburban jolts, 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 1998 GMC C2500 Suburban in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your GMC C2500 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your GMC C2500 Suburban

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 GMC C2500 Suburban suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your C2500 Suburban’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn GMC C2500 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1998 GMC C2500 Suburban’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.

Questions About 1998 GMC C2500 Suburban Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new 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.
  • Why should my GMC C2500 Suburban get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how GMC intended.
  • When should I have my GMC C2500 Suburban power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your C2500 Suburban’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
