When To Get 2012 GMC Canyon Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2012 GMC Canyon, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Canyon feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2012 GMC Canyon in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. 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 parts of your GMC Canyon 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 Canyon Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 GMC Canyon suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Canyon’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn GMC Canyon shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 GMC Canyon suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 Canyon Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Canyon's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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 correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • 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 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
