When To Get 1991 GMC G1500 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1991 GMC G1500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. 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. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 GMC G1500, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 parts of your GMC G1500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC G1500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1991 GMC G1500 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1991 GMC G1500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn GMC G1500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1991 GMC G1500 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1991 G1500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my G1500's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated 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 G1500? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your G1500’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
