When you first bought your 1983 GMC K2500 Suburban, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your K2500 Suburban jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1983 GMC K2500 Suburban in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 K2500 Suburban steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Your 1983 GMC K2500 Suburban’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 K2500 Suburban’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn GMC K2500 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your K2500 Suburban’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
