Suspension Service & Repair for 1994 GMC Jimmy

Does Your 1994 GMC Jimmy Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1994 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, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1994 GMC Jimmy, bring it 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, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Jimmy steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your GMC Jimmy

Your 1994 GMC Jimmy’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1994 GMC Jimmy shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn GMC Jimmy shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Jimmy’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1994 Jimmy Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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. 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 the tires connect with the road how GMC intended.
  • Does my GMC Jimmy power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Jimmy is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
