Suspension Service & Repair for 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy

Does Your 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your S15 Jimmy feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your S15 Jimmy suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your S15 Jimmy steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

GMC S15 Jimmy Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. But there's no set schedule for 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn GMC S15 Jimmy shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1983 GMC S15 Jimmy’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.
