1990 GMC G1500 Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your GMC G1500’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1990 GMC G1500 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1990 GMC G1500, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your G1500 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 GMC G1500, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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 absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 GMC G1500 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 G1500’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC G1500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 GMC G1500’s 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.

1990 G1500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my GMC's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my GMC G1500? 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.
  • When does GMC G1500 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 G1500’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
