During the first few years you had your 1985 GMC K1500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your K1500 bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1985 GMC K1500 in for steering and suspension services. 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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your K1500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1985 GMC K1500’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn GMC K1500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your K1500’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.
