GMC K1500 Suburban Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1984 GMC K1500 Suburban’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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your K1500 Suburban’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC K1500 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your K1500 Suburban’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
