Does Your 1990 GMC K2500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1990 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, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1990 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 absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your K2500 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 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1990 GMC K2500’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your K2500’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your GMC K2500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1990 GMC K2500 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 K2500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my K2500's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for 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? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • When should I have my GMC K2500 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your K2500 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
