1999 GMC K3500 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does GMC recommend steering and suspension service for 1999 GMC K3500s?

Does Your 1999 GMC K3500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1999 GMC K3500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your K3500 bounces, 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 1999 GMC K3500 in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your K3500 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 K3500 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1999 GMC K3500 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1999 GMC K3500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your GMC K3500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1999 GMC K3500’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1999 GMC K3500 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my GMC's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC K3500? 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.
  • When does GMC K3500 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your K3500’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
