Does Your 2009 GMC Envoy Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2009 GMC Envoy, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Envoy feels bouncy, sways 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 Envoy in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Envoy suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Envoy 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your GMC Envoy

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 GMC Envoy’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2009 GMC Envoy shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn GMC Envoy shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2009 GMC 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.

2009 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my GMC Envoy get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • When does GMC Envoy power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Envoy is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
