2000 GMC Savana 1500 Maintenance and Service Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your GMC Savana 1500 due for service yet?

Does Your 2000 GMC Savana 1500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2000 GMC Savana 1500, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Savana 1500 jolts, 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 2000 GMC Savana 1500 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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 GMC Savana 1500’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 Savana 1500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2000 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. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 Savana 1500’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn GMC Savana 1500 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2000 GMC Savana 1500’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

2000 Savana 1500 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Savana 1500's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my GMC Savana 1500? 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 the tires connect with the road how GMC intended.
  • When should I have my GMC Savana 1500 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Savana 1500’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
