Does Your 1991 GMC Safari Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1991 GMC Safari, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Safari bounces, drifts to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 GMC Safari, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC Safari Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 1991 GMC Safari’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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 1991 GMC Safari shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your GMC Safari shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1991 GMC Safari suspension 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.

Questions About 1991 GMC Safari Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Safari's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.

Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • Does my GMC Safari power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
