Is It Time For 1995 GMC G1500 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1995 GMC G1500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your G1500 bounces, drifts 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 1995 GMC G1500 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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 absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, 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 what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If your G1500 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 G1500

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1995 GMC G1500 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your G1500’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your GMC G1500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1995 GMC G1500 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1995 GMC G1500 Steering & Suspension

  • 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? 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 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 inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
