Is It Time For 2013 GMC Savana 1500 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2013 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. Maybe your Savana 1500 jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2013 GMC Savana 1500 in for suspension and steering service. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Savana 1500 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Savana 1500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

GMC Savana 1500 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2013 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.

But there's no set schedule for 2013 GMC Savana 1500 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn GMC Savana 1500 shocks and struts.
