When To Get 1996 GMC Jimmy Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1996 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. Maybe your Jimmy bounces, pulls 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 1996 GMC Jimmy, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub 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 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your GMC Jimmy

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 GMC Jimmy suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1996 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 could all be indicators of worn GMC Jimmy shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1996 GMC Jimmy’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1996 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 alert you to the need for 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 should I have my GMC Jimmy power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Jimmy is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
