When does GMC recommend steering and suspension service for 1995 GMC G3500s?

Is It Time For 1995 GMC G3500 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1995 GMC G3500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your G3500 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1995 GMC G3500, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 parts of your GMC G3500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

GMC G3500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1995 GMC G3500 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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1995 GMC G3500’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn GMC G3500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your G3500’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1995 G3500 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 alert you to the need for new 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC G3500? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 G3500 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your G3500’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
