Does Your 2005 GMC Safari Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2005 GMC Safari, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Safari feels bouncy, sways 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 2005 GMC Safari in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub 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 GMC Safari’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

GMC Safari Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2005 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. 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 getting your 2005 GMC Safari’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your GMC Safari shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 GMC Safari’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2005 Safari Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my GMC's 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? 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.
  • Does my GMC Safari power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Safari’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per GMC's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
