When To Get 1986 GMC S15 Jimmy Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1986 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, 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 1986 GMC S15 Jimmy, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. 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 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 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 limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1986 GMC S15 Jimmy shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC S15 Jimmy shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 GMC S15 Jimmy suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 1986 GMC S15 Jimmy Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my S15 Jimmy's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • When should I have my GMC S15 Jimmy power steering fluid 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’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
