When To Get 1990 GMC Jimmy Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1990 GMC Jimmy, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Jimmy feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 GMC Jimmy in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, 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 problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your GMC Jimmy 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 Jimmy Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1990 GMC Jimmy 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Jimmy’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn GMC Jimmy shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 GMC Jimmy’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
