Is It Time For 1991 GMC R3500 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1991 GMC R3500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your R3500 jolts, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 GMC R3500, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your R3500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC R3500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 GMC R3500’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your R3500’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn GMC R3500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1991 GMC R3500 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1991 GMC R3500 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my GMC's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, 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 R3500? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When does GMC R3500 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your R3500’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
