2009 Canyon GMC Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2009 GMC Canyon Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2009 GMC Canyon, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Canyon feels bouncy, leans 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 2009 GMC Canyon in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Canyon suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Canyon 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 Canyon Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2009 GMC Canyon’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 2009 GMC Canyon shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn GMC Canyon shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Canyon’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 2009 GMC Canyon Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC Canyon? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • When should I have my GMC Canyon power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Canyon’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
