Is It Time For 1984 GMC K2500 Suburban Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1984 GMC K2500 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 K2500 Suburban jolts, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1984 GMC K2500 Suburban, bring it 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your K2500 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 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.

GMC K2500 Suburban Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1984 GMC K2500 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 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 factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your GMC K2500 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your K2500 Suburban’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1984 K2500 Suburban Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my K2500 Suburban's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC K2500 Suburban? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • Does my GMC K2500 Suburban power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your K2500 Suburban is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
