During the first few years you had your 1988 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. Maybe your K2500 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 1988 GMC K2500 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
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, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 GMC K2500’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.
Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 GMC K2500 suspension system. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1988 GMC K2500 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn GMC K2500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 GMC K2500 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
