1984 G1500 GMC Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1984 GMC G1500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1984 GMC G1500, 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 G1500 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1984 GMC G1500, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your G1500 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your GMC G1500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

GMC G1500 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1984 GMC G1500’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1984 GMC G1500 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC G1500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 GMC G1500 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1984 G1500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact 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.

  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my GMC G1500? 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 come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • Does my GMC G1500 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months.
