Is It Time For 1996 GMC Savana 2500 Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1996 GMC Savana 2500, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Savana 2500 jolts, drifts 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 1996 GMC Savana 2500 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Savana 2500 suspension system needs repair, 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 Savana 2500 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your GMC Savana 2500

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 GMC Savana 2500’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. 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 2500’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your GMC Savana 2500 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 GMC Savana 2500 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
