When you first drove your 1996 GMC Savana 1500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Savana 1500 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 1996 GMC Savana 1500 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.
The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Savana 1500 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your GMC Savana 1500’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.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 GMC Savana 1500’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Savana 1500’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn GMC Savana 1500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Savana 1500’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
