1989 G1500 GMC Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 1989 GMC G1500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 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. Maybe your G1500 jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1989 GMC G1500 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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

Your 1989 GMC G1500’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1989 GMC G1500 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn GMC G1500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your G1500’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

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 does GMC G1500 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
