2010 GMC Savana 1500 Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2010 GMC Savana 1500 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2010 GMC Savana 1500, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Savana 1500 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2010 GMC Savana 1500 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC Savana 1500 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2010 GMC Savana 1500 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your GMC up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2010 GMC Savana 1500’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your GMC Savana 1500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2010 GMC Savana 1500 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

2010 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 tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my GMC Savana 1500 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 top it off per GMC's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
