When To Get 1989 GMC S15 Jimmy Suspension Service

When you first drove your 1989 GMC S15 Jimmy, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your S15 Jimmy feels bouncy, pulls 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 1989 GMC S15 Jimmy, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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

Your 1989 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. 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. 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 from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn GMC S15 Jimmy shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your S15 Jimmy’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1989 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 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 should my GMC S15 Jimmy get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how 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 can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
  • Why is my GMC S15 Jimmy bouncing so much? Excessive bouncing in your GMC S15 Jimmy might be due to damaged struts or shocks that are unable to absorb road bumps effectively, causing your vehicle to feel more like a pogo stick than a smooth ride.
  • Why does my S15 Jimmy tilt forward when I hit the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your S15 Jimmy combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • What do worn GMC S15 Jimmy shocks feel like? If your S15 Jimmy shock absorbers are worn out, they won’t be able to properly dampen road bumps. You might experience a bouncy or unstable ride, especially over bumps or rough roads. Your S15 Jimmy might also feel like it sways or rolls as you turn.
