1998 GMC Jimmy Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 1998 GMC Jimmy suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1998 GMC Jimmy Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1998 GMC Jimmy, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Jimmy bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1998 GMC Jimmy, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your Jimmy suspension system needs repair, 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 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1998 GMC Jimmy’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. 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 from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn GMC Jimmy shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 GMC Jimmy suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1998 GMC Jimmy Steering & Suspension

  • 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 help you notice when you need 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC Jimmy? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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.
  • When does GMC Jimmy power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
