Does Your 1998 GMC K1500 Suburban Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1998 GMC K1500 Suburban, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your K1500 Suburban bounces, sways 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 1998 GMC K1500 Suburban 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your K1500 Suburban 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 K1500 Suburban’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 K1500 Suburban Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 GMC K1500 Suburban’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 GMC K1500 Suburban’s shocks and struts replaced 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. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 GMC K1500 Suburban suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
