When To Get 1989 GMC S15 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 1989 GMC S15, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your S15 jolts, sways 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 1989 GMC S15 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your S15 suspension system needs repair, 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 recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

GMC S15 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1989 GMC S15 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your S15’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC S15 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your S15’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1989 GMC S15 Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC S15? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • 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 S15 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
