Does Your 1989 GMC Safari Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1989 GMC Safari, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Safari feels bouncy, pulls 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 Safari 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, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Safari suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Safari steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

GMC Safari Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1989 GMC Safari’s suspension. 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. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1989 GMC Safari’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn GMC Safari shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1989 GMC Safari’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1989 GMC Safari Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Safari's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my GMC Safari get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big 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.
  • When should I have my GMC Safari power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Safari is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
