Does Your 1987 GMC S15 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1987 GMC S15, 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 jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1987 GMC S15 in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC S15 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1987 GMC S15’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1987 GMC S15’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn GMC S15 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1987 GMC S15 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 1987 GMC S15 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in 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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my GMC S15? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my GMC S15 power steering fluid need to be checked? 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’ll top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
