Is It Time For 1984 GMC Caballero Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1984 GMC Caballero, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Caballero feels bouncy, drifts 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 1984 GMC Caballero in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Caballero suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your GMC Caballero suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

GMC Caballero Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1984 GMC Caballero suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Caballero’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC Caballero shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Caballero’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1984 GMC Caballero Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Caballero's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my GMC Caballero get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 does GMC Caballero power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Caballero’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
