Suspension Service & Repair for 1985 GMC S15 Jimmy

Does Your 1985 GMC S15 Jimmy Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1985 GMC S15 Jimmy, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your S15 Jimmy jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1985 GMC S15 Jimmy, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your S15 Jimmy suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your GMC S15 Jimmy’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 S15 Jimmy Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 1985 GMC S15 Jimmy’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your S15 Jimmy’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your GMC S15 Jimmy shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1985 GMC S15 Jimmy suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1985 S15 Jimmy Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 S15 Jimmy get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • When does GMC S15 Jimmy 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
