Is It Time For 1990 GMC R2500 Suburban Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1990 GMC R2500 Suburban, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your R2500 Suburban bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 GMC R2500 Suburban in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your GMC R2500 Suburban’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC R2500 Suburban Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1990 GMC R2500 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. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1990 GMC R2500 Suburban shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC R2500 Suburban shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 GMC R2500 Suburban’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 R2500 Suburban Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for 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.
  • Why should my GMC R2500 Suburban get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • When does GMC R2500 Suburban 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 R2500 Suburban is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
