When To Get 2011 GMC Canyon Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2011 GMC Canyon, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. 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 2011 GMC Canyon, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Canyon steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC Canyon Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 GMC Canyon 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Canyon’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your GMC Canyon shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 GMC Canyon’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2011 GMC Canyon Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Canyon's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my GMC Canyon 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. 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 does GMC Canyon power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Canyon is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
