Getting your 1985 C2500’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your GMC C2500 like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like GMC advise that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 1985 GMC C2500 brakes. Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often do 1985 GMC C2500 brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your C2500. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for GMC C2500s that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed GMC's standards.
Your GMC C2500 engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving and responsive brakes go hand in hand. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For example, if you drive with completely worn out brake pads, your rotors might start to warp, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for the right brake repair for your 1985 GMC C2500. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe removal and replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
