When To Get 1990 GMC C3500 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1990 GMC C3500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your C3500 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 GMC C3500, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle 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 all of your options and the potential cost. If your C3500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

GMC C3500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 GMC C3500 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1990 GMC C3500’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your GMC C3500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 GMC C3500 suspension 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.

1990 C3500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my GMC C3500? 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 come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • When should I have my GMC C3500 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your C3500 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
