Does Your 1989 GMC Jimmy Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1989 GMC Jimmy, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Jimmy jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1989 GMC Jimmy in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Jimmy suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your GMC Jimmy’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC Jimmy Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 GMC Jimmy 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 GMC Jimmy’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your GMC Jimmy shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 GMC Jimmy’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 Jimmy Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Jimmy's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my GMC Jimmy? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Jimmy 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
