Not sure when or if your GMC C3500’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1999 GMC C3500 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1999 GMC C3500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your C3500 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1999 GMC C3500 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your GMC C3500’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

GMC C3500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1999 GMC C3500’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 getting your 1999 GMC C3500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn GMC C3500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 GMC C3500’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1999 C3500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my C3500's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my GMC C3500 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my GMC C3500 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your C3500’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
