Suspension Service & Repair for 1987 GMC S15 Jimmy

Does Your 1987 GMC S15 Jimmy Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1987 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. Perhaps your S15 Jimmy feels bouncy, drifts 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 1987 GMC S15 Jimmy, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

GMC S15 Jimmy Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1987 GMC S15 Jimmy’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out.

But there's no set schedule for 1987 GMC S15 Jimmy shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn GMC S15 Jimmy shocks and struts.

Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
