During the first few years you had your 1996 GMC Safari, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Safari jolts, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1996 GMC Safari in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. 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 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.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 GMC Safari’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1996 GMC Safari shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn GMC Safari shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 GMC Safari suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.
