Suspension Service & Repair for 2006 GMC Envoy

Does Your 2006 GMC Envoy Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2006 GMC Envoy, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Envoy jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2006 GMC Envoy 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. 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 Envoy 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 Envoy Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2006 GMC Envoy’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2006 GMC Envoy’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn GMC Envoy shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Envoy’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2006 Envoy Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my GMC's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my GMC Envoy? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how GMC intended.
  • Does my GMC Envoy power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Envoy’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
