Is It Time For 1997 GMC Savana 1500 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1997 GMC Savana 1500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. 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. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1997 GMC Savana 1500, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. 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 parts of your GMC Savana 1500 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your GMC Savana 1500

Your 1997 GMC Savana 1500’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1997 GMC Savana 1500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn GMC Savana 1500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 GMC Savana 1500 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 Savana 1500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my GMC's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my GMC Savana 1500 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment.

Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way GMC intended.
  • When should I have my GMC Savana 1500 power steering fluid 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 top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
