When you first drove your 2004 GMC Canyon, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Canyon feels bouncy, drifts 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 2004 GMC Canyon, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Canyon suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your GMC Canyon’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.
Your 2004 GMC Canyon’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. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Canyon’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn GMC Canyon shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2004 GMC Canyon suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.
