1993 GMC K2500 Maintenance Schedule

When does GMC recommend steering and suspension service for 1993 GMC K2500s?

Does Your 1993 GMC K2500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1993 GMC K2500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your K2500 jolts, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1993 GMC K2500 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 parts of your GMC K2500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

GMC K2500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1993 GMC K2500’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’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn GMC K2500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1993 GMC K2500’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1993 K2500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations 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.
  • Does my GMC K2500 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your K2500’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
