Is It Time For 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your S15 Jimmy jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

GMC S15 Jimmy Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 1988 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 an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn GMC S15 Jimmy shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1988 GMC S15 Jimmy suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1988 S15 Jimmy Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my S15 Jimmy's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 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 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 checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your S15 Jimmy is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
