Suspension Service & Repair for 1993 GMC Safari

Does Your 1993 GMC Safari Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1993 GMC Safari, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Safari feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1993 GMC Safari in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, axle 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 go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your GMC Safari suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your GMC Safari

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1993 GMC Safari’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Safari’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC Safari shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Safari’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1993 Safari Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Safari's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my GMC Safari? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major 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 Safari 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 Safari’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
