Does Your 1989 GMC C2500 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1989 GMC C2500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C2500 jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 GMC C2500 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, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your C2500 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your GMC C2500’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC C2500 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1989 GMC C2500 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation 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. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 C2500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C2500's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my GMC C2500? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how GMC intended.
  • When should I have my GMC C2500 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your C2500 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
