1989 GMC R2500 Drivetrain Service

Your R2500 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your R2500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1989 GMC R2500 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following GMC's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are GMC R2500 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1989 GMC R2500 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your R2500 might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your GMC R2500 doesn’t drive like it used to.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1989 GMC R2500 drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
