All About 1987 GMC Safari Drivetrain Service

Your Safari drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your GMC, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Safari and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1987 GMC Safari to maintain its performance power. Follow GMC's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get GMC Safari Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1987 GMC Safari drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Safari might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your GMC Safari.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1987 GMC Safari? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
