When does GMC recommend steering and suspension service for 1991 GMC R1500 Suburbans?

Does Your 1991 GMC R1500 Suburban Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1991 GMC R1500 Suburban, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your R1500 Suburban feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 GMC R1500 Suburban, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your R1500 Suburban suspension system needs repair, 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 R1500 Suburban’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your GMC R1500 Suburban

Your 1991 GMC R1500 Suburban’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 reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1991 GMC R1500 Suburban shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn GMC R1500 Suburban shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1991 GMC R1500 Suburban suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1991 R1500 Suburban Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my R1500 Suburban's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC R1500 Suburban? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how GMC intended.
  • Does my GMC R1500 Suburban power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
