When should you have your 1999 GMC K1500 Suburban suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1999 GMC K1500 Suburban Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1999 GMC K1500 Suburban, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your K1500 Suburban bounces, pulls 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 1999 GMC K1500 Suburban in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your K1500 Suburban suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your GMC K1500 Suburban’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

GMC K1500 Suburban Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1999 GMC K1500 Suburban suspension system. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1999 GMC K1500 Suburban shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn GMC K1500 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your K1500 Suburban’s 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.

1999 K1500 Suburban Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my K1500 Suburban's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my GMC K1500 Suburban get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how GMC intended.
  • When should I have my GMC K1500 Suburban power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your K1500 Suburban’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
