Does Your 1984 GMC S15 Jimmy Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1984 GMC S15 Jimmy, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your S15 Jimmy jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1984 GMC S15 Jimmy, bring it in for steering and suspension services. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your S15 Jimmy steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

GMC S15 Jimmy Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1984 GMC S15 Jimmy suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 getting your 1984 GMC S15 Jimmy’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn GMC S15 Jimmy shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1984 GMC S15 Jimmy suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1984 S15 Jimmy Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my GMC S15 Jimmy? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how GMC intended.
  • Does my GMC S15 Jimmy power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your S15 Jimmy is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
