During the first few years you had your 1986 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. Maybe your Caballero jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1986 GMC Caballero, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.
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 dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Caballero suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your GMC Caballero’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Your 1986 GMC Caballero’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Caballero’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn GMC Caballero shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 GMC Caballero suspension 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.
When your 1986 Caballero’s steering and suspension gives you grief, turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care. From CV joints to coil springs, your GMC will be in expert hands. Schedule an appointment today.
