Does Your 1990 GMC Safari Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1990 GMC Safari, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Safari bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 GMC Safari in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. 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 GMC Safari’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 Safari Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1990 GMC Safari’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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1990 GMC Safari’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your GMC Safari shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1990 GMC Safari’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
