Does Your 2008 GMC Savana 1500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2008 GMC Savana 1500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Savana 1500 jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2008 GMC Savana 1500 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2008 GMC Savana 1500 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. 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, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn GMC Savana 1500 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Savana 1500’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 2008 GMC Savana 1500 Steering & Suspension

  • 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 help you notice when you need 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 Savana 1500? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how GMC intended.
  • When does GMC Savana 1500 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Savana 1500 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow GMC service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
