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, shocks, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue 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

Your 2009 GMC Savana 1500’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.

A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn GMC Savana 1500 shocks and struts.
