Does Your 1988 GMC G2500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1988 GMC G2500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your G2500 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 GMC G2500 in for suspension and steering service. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your G2500 suspension system needs repair, 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 G2500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your GMC G2500

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1988 GMC G2500’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your G2500’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn GMC G2500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 GMC G2500 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 G2500 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 help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my GMC G2500 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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 should I have my GMC G2500 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your G2500’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
