Does Your 1993 GMC Jimmy Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1993 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 a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1993 GMC Jimmy in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. 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 Jimmy 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 Jimmy Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1993 GMC Jimmy’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1993 GMC Jimmy shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your GMC Jimmy shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Jimmy’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1993 Jimmy Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my GMC's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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.
  • Why should my GMC Jimmy get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 Jimmy 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 Jimmy’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
