Is It Time For 1985 GMC C2500 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1985 GMC C2500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your C2500 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1985 GMC C2500, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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 absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your C2500 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your GMC C2500 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.

GMC C2500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 GMC C2500’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 GMC C2500’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn GMC C2500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your C2500’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1985 GMC C2500 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C2500's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC C2500? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • Does my GMC C2500 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your C2500 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
