1985 K2500 GMC Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 1985 GMC K2500 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1985 GMC K2500, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your K2500 feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1985 GMC K2500, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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 dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 K2500’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

GMC K2500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1985 GMC K2500’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. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1985 GMC K2500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn GMC K2500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1985 GMC K2500’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 1985 GMC K2500 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my GMC's suspension?

Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.

Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • When should I have my GMC K2500 power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
